In port,
from many times
around the horns.
I strut in boots
that have known the decks of many ships
to many seas on many trips in many storms.

And yet I turn,
away from my bronzed
slender with it girl
who loves the gold and what it buys,
to gaze from eyes she will not see
for all her ways of gaiety

to watch you Cynthia,
in your Sunday lace,
blue ribboned hair;
your emigrant face
though worn
and marred,
as mine,
by experience
still alight with dream.

And I feel alone,
crowded in all the ways I've known:
the what and whom  I've become accustomed to,
remembering a dream
that seems renewed,

watching you Cynthia bringing calm,

calling home

beside you.

Even though I risk the accusation that I sound like a wine commercial:

The evening isn't complete without Huan Yi.

RL,

Thank you.  

This bit as the title suggests was elicited
by three interior statures I have in my apartment,
(Herbertís Fragment by another and a poem by
Z. Herbert).

I very much want to do something influenced by a
copy of a Kouros I just acquired but that is going to take time.

Thanks again for reading.

John

This has a sense of "old world" quality, John.
I like this one enough to library it, not
only for future reading, but studying,
as well.

Thank you.
