THE LONELY SEARCH
Innate tremendous beauty dwells in words
That surpass all visions --- wilder than the shade of purest blue--
No trilling song that I have ever heard,
No surrogate-- can surpass the purist elegance that I pursue.
Each night my dreams entice that I will find
A kindred body whisp'ring words I long to hear--
But--waking fear my restless hungry mind
Holds me doomed in isolation...dreadful fear.
