Popinjay

At times I feel a popinjay
In a supercilious way
For spreading sage upon the bread
Of saying things that I have said

Who really knows the truth of things?
Or hears the song another sings
Each melody a song of one
That will not stop until itís done

In fact Iíve trouble with my own
I hear it in a monotone
And often bleach it in the sky
To paint it like a butterfly

There it hears the hum of views
Whispered in the wind of hues
That washes me in gyres suds
To bubble off the mires mud

A popinjay of word and strand
Washing music through times sand

Most excellent are your pearls of wisdom this morn Sy!

In the midst of winter,
I found there lives within me..
An invincible summer.

I will try not to be a popinjay because there are so many things that I need to know.  No one likes a vain talkative person.
