Five Little Sillies

Can you be happy in your distress
Or will you just suffer and be a mess?
~~ ~~ ~~
Bitterness! Now, there’s a thought,
Something that I think I ought
Never, ever to embrace—
Let me look into your face.
~~ ~~ ~~
It’s better, I think, to shift your eyes
Away from the things that spell your demise
And focus instead on the good and true.
Well, that’s what I think. Now, how about you?
~~ ~~ ~~
Walking through the fog alone,
Gnawing on a raven’s bone
Makes me want to shout, not sing:
Wish I had the raven’s wing!
~~ ~~ ~~
I’m emboldened to do deeds
That will take me far from Leeds;
Never mind my indigence,
I will make my way to France.

summoning daybreak
Birdwoman scatters the stars—
her triumphal shout
