Heart untarnished by misuse
Genius son of common man
Father fails to understand
And breaks him with abuse

Now a man touched by mystery
Swaying hearts like a rock song
Carved of oiled iron wood strong
Diving in his cool pool of creativity
Unbound but lacks freedom to be

Plethora of purity in his soul
Sovereign of what he controls
But for damage, could be anything
Govern, teach, paint, or sing

His light is veiled in darkness
Lonely lover comes, dream’s kiss
Flying on threadbare carpets of magic
Always leaves before love becomes tragic

Tall as California redwood trees,
Rain that brings me to my knees
Kiss like a prince shakes me
Kiss of passion awakens me

Trying to hold him, like fireflies
Chasing after rare butterflies
Capturing the rainbow’s end
In the leprechaun land of pretend

An excellent poem, Corinne! I love the imagery! And leprechauns too!
