Soliloquy

O hear I chant clinging to a sullen northern shore Tempestuous serene rocky beach that you so adore Sultry soliloquy sturdy stifled structure sings A witness of forgotten sailors and majestic kings Them, I blessed with gracious shelter in storms For I unmanned, rejoiced in accompanying norms Dreaming of worlds afar with anchored symphony Of parting tears that await a returning euphony O watch my ancient red-bricked watchtower in sky Where the cherry-eyed albatross prepares to fly Whispering of solitary voyages on vessels adrift Guiding them with entailing waters, cold and swift Them, I engulf in mystic hues of radiant green light Their shivering agony embraced by divine joy so bright Dancing to tunes of prodigious waves as they kissed My feet reuniting from the ocean bed of forlorn mist O taste the pungent waves that carry eternal seasons timeless frequencies sprinkled on heavenly reasons essence of leaves rolled in snow and streams they fuse Beads reborn of universe in a cradled hammock cruise Them, I absorb with their enchanting viscous tides They melt with innocent bliss my truculent slides That flourishes my solitary light to let me sense Melodies of blushing mornings with visitors hence O touch my walls, they have been barren for so long Once adorned with pearls, now abandoned lifelong Them I drench with tears of loneliness in grief Wiped by a music of gentle footsteps oh so brief I await the echoing hums of a delicate little girl Her fingers orchestrated the howling wind with a twirl I became the serene light that guides despondent ships A proud beacon of benign hope dissolving dark eclipse
