Calliopsis

CALLIOPSIS
(For M.M.E)

My calliopsis,
One beatified breath in me
A rolling ray in my race
Tender softness in my embrace

My calliopsis,
Elephantine influence in me
Dissolving magic in my blood
Thou art my victory and my sword

My calliopsis,
The only strength left in me
The Soprano in my song
The magical sweetness in my tongue 

My calliopsis,
Skeletal framework in me
Veins running my blood of life
Defender and fender of my strife

My calliopsis,
Aphrodite’s touch in me
Bringer of light to my night
Distinctive clearness in my sight

If only I could live this world
A thousand times
A thousand times
And another thousand times,
Still you will be my calliopsis,
My calico,
My callaloo,
And my calla lily.
