Once, I was inspired
to write the most noble of treatises.
It bobbed beyond mind's reach
or so it seemed.
Its beauty and and form
possessed a hypnotic presence
that called out
for all my understanding.
If I could just capture its lustre
with words upon paper
heaven's angels would surely sing!
If its message was only within my grasp
I'd dance the grandest of pavanes in ink
then lay my pen's spent soul at its feet.
