An Introspection


There is a time for rhyme,
And then there is another time.
There is a face I show,
And in another place,
Another face to see
And then there's me.

Is it me that in my rhyme I see,
Or do I lie?
What shall I be?

The mirror stands before,
Its image I ignore.
I wear a mask,
And still I ask,
What can this wretched creature be?

I seek a key to set me free,
But still the door lies open.
The way is marked with lantern clear
But still I stumble.
These words they trickle from my mind
In permutated jumble.

The truth I see,
The words aren't me,
But I am my word's decree.

poet Ralph Waldo Emerson

Knows he who tills this lonely field
To reap its scanty corn,
What mystic fruit his acres yield
At midnight and at morn?

In the long sunny afternoon,
