Ninety-three

Ninety-three is infinite and whole,
Interred by Nature in a ruined city.
Neither sea nor sky knows streets or squares,
Edges, angles, opposites, or pairs,
Time or yearning, pleasure, joy, or pity;
Yet both reside within the prisoned soul.

Though years of brick and stone must take their toll,
Horizons are as functional as prayers,
Removing ancient boundary lines and stairs.
Each truth is neither old nor young and pretty,
Eternally at rest upon no shoal.

Ninety-four Ninety-four

Ninety-four
Ninety-four remains a little lonely,Incarcerated in her single room.Now quieted, now full of empty yearning,Each aged organ still with passion burning,To her betimes the body seems a tomb.Yet life itself is no less lithe and comely.Friends and loves long past live in her only,Open as a garden in full bloom.Upon her, then, a world of wonder turningRides undaunted into gathering gloom.

Ninety-two Ninety-two

Ninety-two
Ninety-two sits quaintly in a garden,Intent on living through the awesome day.No sunshine is direct, but through the treesEnough is dappled in the gentle breezeTo sing of glory in a muted way.Yet time itself can sometimes be a burden.The hours sway like dancers, slow and wanton,While thoughts flit through the roses as they please,Open-armed and lithe yet loathe to stay.
