        A prince of fools

Dauntless stands illusions wave,
That washes o'er this lonely knave.
The sun casts doldrums over me.
And death dances naked the sea.

Not a sound does pierce the lull,
Not a sight does spear the dull.
Not a breath of air brings tease,
Not a stir of air will ease.

What fancies must I really wed.
To kill the doldrums in my head.
To what blind faith must I pray.
To pacify the wind to play.

There seems no language of belief,
Can shed a drop of some relief.
I would the smallest crack of door.
To hear or see that evermore.

Be I the fool, to be or not,
Or just the fool that cooks this pot?
A prince of fools in search the sea,
That laughs a lock without a key.

God grant me that of idiots lease,
Or pity me, some petty peace.

Sy
No pity do I have for thee
For you do sure possess the key
You were the one to teach a mime
How to read between the line
And now so blind, as to not see
The lines between the poetry
Love ya,
Liz

Sy,
Incidently, this poem is exquisite!
Forgot to say that. It is your trademark writing, and should go in your first volume of poetry. But I hope not to take this poem seriously for it's content.
Love ya, Liz

Elizabeth,
I be the person in the sea
And also the person that you see.
It's all a matter of demention.
Nothing to do with convention.
I thank you for the double dip
And also for the printers tip.
Love ya, Sy
Hoot,
A prince, is a prince, is a prince.
To you some prince maybe the prince.

As in "ignorance is bliss" Sy?
In that, often have I wished for such bliss!
Well done!

Well, Sy, I can't say if you've reached prince status yet but you certainly are no fool. This poem is excellent proof of that.

Great poem!

 ~*~ Hell is not a place of fire and a devil with a tail and horns. But a place of torment because the light of God is gone. To escape this, accept the blood of Jesus Christ! ~*~
