'The Parnassian Hand' by David Hart

"The Parnassian Hand" - A Poem by David Hart Five fingers hover over black print Apposed on a white sheet. Tan flesh, short cropped nails and Overlapping cuticles--an old hand-- A buxom hand--a hand delighted to treat. Words, numerously luxuriate on holey Crimpled sheets. Words astonishing and boon Words effulgent and true To arrange? No. Avast! Now pondering in this hushed room Gazing athwart still and attent. Ahoy to the words! An august phrase for rent. Words awhirl or bedizended Words behooved and apt Words echt and moiling Aye, perhaps diamonds of fact. Five fingers hover over print in black Print regaled and caressed by an Amorous attack
