ODE TO SHELLEY AND KEATS

Folder: 
TROUBADOR'S CHOICE

 

Lacking Percy Shelley’s eloquence

I struggle to find the correct phrase

It just goes by simple coincidence

That I’m monitored by my own ways

 

Shelley rose thru the orchids of rhyme

While I vainly search for reason

He stood top the logic of time

While I remain guilty of treason

 

Shelley and Keats found the correct line;

The meter; the sweet rhythm of dreams

I walk the forest and the pines

But no beauty comes from the moonbeams

Reason over rhyme works well - rhyme about reason? Hmmmm...
