Just having fun.

      I see a windmill

I am an old Don Quixote
Charging on passť pyrrhic crafts.
And I hate the free form windmills
Of pate sophisticated drafts.

They log the acid cryptic pen      
Send fog onto the naive glen      
Hide the simple and mystify
And Vail the true. Of mice and men.

They groom readers with abstract themes.      
Spin innuendos picayune    
Swim in a jumbled jamboree
And feed you symbols with a spoon.

They, dare to heap neglect on me.
The song I sing, their requiem.      
I stand in answer, lance in hand  
And water, on the best of them.

I do not want to change my way,
Nor do I care of what they say.

Ah, I remember that chapter of Don Quixote when he charges those windmills fancying them to be giants...interesting poem.

Upon thy slumber shall intrude,
Our thoughts, our souls- O God above!
In every deed shall mingle, love."

I'm glad this was in fun, or Severn would have a fit, and you would hear about it. You are the master of poetry, structured, of course. You phrase together words in a way that's beyond genious. And I am following behind in admiration.
Your friend,

Sy, the windmill of your mind spins me into a world where I could close my eyes and listen and be happy.
