~ Whilome / Mystery ~

~ ◊ ΜΨΣΤÊΡÿ ◊ ~


In truancy of light be'eth darkness;

'Pon absence of darkness shines light;

Pray show thee abodes whereth mystery goes,

Whenst umbrae doth shirkest the wight.


Is she there in the wind where the feathered song blows,

In a corner of sky where the glistener glows?

Peradventure the graces where hopeful hearts dwelt,

Aye, affectionate chases that twain lovers felt?


Dost she surf 'pon frothed arch as spumed crest greets yon breeze,

'Hind knave patches o' pirates who remonstrate seas?

Wilt she pitch up her yurt in thine own devlish heart,

Amble brume-laden paths hewn on unchartered charts?

Sail invisible craft betwixt fear and its tear,

Will she shoo thee away if ye usher her near?


Wilt she fain to be charmed by tranced swain of her ilk,

As she shimmies in gauzes of dancing-girl's silk?

Will she turn back the clock on the world's longest day,

Does she step to the fore when there's nothing to say?


Must she rule vivid realms beyond poetry's eyes,

Don the womanly mask of thy chosen disguise?

Read the soul of your muse with her tittle and jot,

Furnish erudite flow for your criminal plot?


Yea, in all of these things she won't fail to alink,

All the twists ye have thought flown on wings of your ink,

To alight on the world, tote a colour to your race,

Citing ensorcelled words via her unspoken face.


THE END

" What pageant subtle didst I espy,

As dawn broached dusks' skeletal sky?

Whenst suntide fleshed night's stony eye,

In lunelight's troth of tender sigh? "

      I love the poem about the Muse, Romeo. What a great honour for our Poetry Month. Very well done.

      Hope all is well with you and your loved ones. Have a wonderful week. Blessings to you, Dear Poet.

      Thank you Phyllis.

      Yeah; things are pretty O.K. on this side of the water; my sister couldn't emotionally cope with looking after our mother after she had had her double stroke so I've been taking over since just after Christmas and trying to fit in work and writing as well - she's much better now though.

      I trust that all's well with you also and that you are finding time to enjoy your grandchildren.

      Take care dear Phyllis and hope you have a wonderful week.

      I agree with Jamie. Its dreary and rainy here so this is a beautiful spot of sunshine to start the day. Thank you for this lovely poem.

      Voted up, awesome, and beautiful.

      Aw Mary; I've just taxied over from your latest doglet Hub but couldn't leave a remark. Your new Gizmo is cute as a button and couldn't keep a straight face when reading your list of exotically named pooches :)

      Much obliged for you coming by and happy that some of the verse helped to lift a somewhat undecided morning in Sinatra's backyard.

      Thanks a million and hope the rest of the day unfolds to your advantage.

      Thanks for adding "whilome to my vocabulary". Comments above state that your poem is wonderful for the morning. Happy to say it is just as thrilling in the afternoon. The mysterious, "unspoken face" affects us all powerfully through your pen. You're a pleasure to read.

      R Q,

      Many thanks for this wonderful Mystery. I am following MsDora here to become richer to know the new word 'Whilome '. The words that you weave always leave me in a kind of ultimate poetic trance where I almost forget that there is a world beyond words and I flowed pretty much in a spontaneous trend till the end of the Mystery.

      Its bit glistened weather out here across the oceans with dash of Sun shine here and there in the April sky. Your poem is always a delight to start the day with really.

      Hope your mother is recovering fine by now. How is your sister doing now? So you must be under bit of pressure to look after your Mom and works obviously. But its real awesome, Friend to see you excel in your poetic voyage like never before among so many responsibilities. My prayers for your Mom and I am sure she will be fit and happy in no time. Convey my regards to her and many warm smiles your sister's way.

      Take care dear friend and much good wishes for you always

      God bless you and your family

      Thank you Deergha and bless you and your kinfolk too.

      My mum is doing just fine now, thank you for asking and sis has bounced back but has run into another problem.

      Thank you so much for your prayers; you have a beautiful heart Deergha.

      Enjoy a fabulous week;

      Kindest Regards;

      The phrase "truancy of light" is amazingly deep with meaning. Splendid use of language.
