Unworthy Elf

Have i ever told
you how comely
thou art?
 
for you are my
 loveliness
 
the reason i coo
in the awkward feathers
of my fledgling ugliness.
 
 
 
Your voice
like bathing leaves
in nude empty cool fountain.
 
 
 
i your dark elfin shadow.
you pass by
and in supplication
 
i cover my thoughts
with the hood
of my nonconforming robe.
 
 
 
For unworthiness
is the only gnarled key
that bids me
 
sneak  a whisper
into your world
for how often is the monstrous
caught by what
 is most mysteriously beautiful…
