regardless of the storm and height of mountains

Spontaneous ladies,
embellished by eons,
illusive, enchanting,
with black velvet "eyes,"
and fringed yellow cloaks,
sparkling with diamonds
at midnight and dawn,
Oh, fly me away from
my grey-flooded days,
from the four-lane race

at rest in one’s peace.

Beset by doubts before I rise from bed
Problems prey on my worrisome mind 
My ability to reason has been maligned
Cockamamie notions fill me with dread
