Whether on Ida’s shady brow,
Or in the chambers of the East,
The chambers of the sun, that now
From ancient melody have ceas’d;

Whether in Heaven ye wander fair,
Or the green corners of the earth,
Or the blue regions of the air
Where the melodious winds have birth;

Whether on coastal rocks ye rove
Beneath the bosom of the sea
Wand’ring in many a coral grove,
For Nine, forsaking Poetry!

How have you left the ancient love
That bards of old enjoy’d in you!
The languid strings do scarcely move!
The sound is forc’d, the notes are few!

In the sun,
The grain turns golden –
King Midas.

Sun and time
Turns growing green to
Valued gold.

The moon and the sun are providing
This minute a sky that’s exciting.
I’d like to say “howdy”,
But here it’s too cloudy.
So I’m at my desk these lines writing.

I wish, since I can’t see the wonder,
Because the thick clouds will not sunder,
That it would just rain –
Pitter patter my pane.
I’d like to see lightning; hear thunder.

I’ll guess I’ll just wait till the next one.
In two ought three three, there’ll be more fun.
Egads! I’ll be old!
……Oh.
I shouldn’t have told.
……Sigh.
Eclipsed super moon brought admission.

————————————————

I did get to see the eclipse. After I had
written the second stanza, I checked the
sky again and the clouds had parted and
there was the red moon in the heavens.

A Cloud? Who Cares?

These two are
Definitely not
Storm chasers.

New York City

Democrats?
Republicans? No,
Taxis rule.

They Shine

Sun’s glory
Reveals and highlights
Tree’s glory.

A Light Conversation

Okay, guys.
You can take over.
It’s your turn. 

  For you, Sun,
  It’s a work of art.
  For us – job. 

  And we fail
  To dispel darkness
  You ne’er do. 

That’s something
I never, never,
Ever see. 

Goodnight, Lamps.
   And to you, warm sir –
   A good day.
