     The arrows of sparrows

When confusion properties the mind.
Those stars and beacons of a kind.
Galaxies are lost in the night
And comets pass beyond our sight.

For it's these orbiting harbingers,
These transcendental messages,
That send their essence of explore,
Into the limbo of evermore.

Building blocks of generations
Studies in sagacity with gyrations,
Moments of flare of candles quick,
Souls that lived in times quick pick.

We salute these masters of relate,
Of their query and debate.
Brave warriors of worded arrows,
Sending flights like flying sparrows.

Verse and rhyme that stir our hearts
With revelations to impart.
Where empathy holds high the glass,
In toasts of wines of hippocras.

I am humble before such a one,
It is she that brought recluse a sun.

Send some my way too...loved that last couplet, Seymour.

 Nail to the mast her holy flag,
Set every threadbare sail-
And give her to the god of storms,
The lightning and the gale!

Sy,

These are the words from high above
The beautious words of Poet Dove
This is what I was speaking of

The subtle genious poet mind
Of words and phrase the heart define
This is the perfect verse and rhyme

Thanks for coming down from tree
To write some lines of poetry
Worth more than gold this epopee

As for the subject, is it I?
Who calls a poet name of Sy
To write a verse to make me cry

If so, you do true honor me
With magnificent poetry
And I thank you most humbly

Love,Liz

To you I have sent nightengales.
