Bergamot ii

Bergamot ii

The ridge, beyond, defined his scopes,
in his Elysian fields he laughed,
the sun suggested, still unmasked,
that he should rise beyond the slopes.

The climber walked above the ridge, 
where nothing was but white, thin clouds, 
a bergamot and timely doubts, 
would pass his soul across the bridge.

The climber caught the clouds to spread, 
in air the town was hung, and Halls
where smiling dancers, saddened souls, 
defined on image words unsaid.

Amid the dancers, courtly laced, 
a graceful Princess smiled at him, 
the bergamot was there to hint
that this transmittance was space-braced.

Beyond the ridge, the Angels roamed
(or were the clouds that turned to rain?)      
the bergamot sang a refrain, 
upon the slopes the dancers domed.

' The climber flies above the ridge, 
the climber laughs while dancers bow, 
the waltz transmits their timely glow, 
a lovely Princess 's on the bridge. '        

Unspoken was she and the crags, 
returned the bergamot's refrain; 
Oh, her beatitude's soft rain,
washed down the slopes the verse he sang.
