The Horse's nose (final version)


Rearing up a remnant from disasters unchaste chatter
Their heads blown away they breathe new thoughts
A reformation's gasp unnoticed alive in a corner
As soft noses sniff the air of survival
Saved by the bi - millenia of tucked shadow
The delicate scent nascent with demos and self

That soft muzzle tells the lie of our image
It's classic - intransigence melted by the cream marble
The dream is smashed - replaced by this reality
A once Athenian flesh a rare incident translated
Reassured a lasting - enacted under the blue skies
Reruns this acclaimed drama plays for todays seduction

poet Sir Walter Raleigh

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust
Our youth, our joys, our all we have,
And pays us but with earth and dust;
