IN TIMES OF WONDER


IN TIMES OF WONDER

      In times of wonder,

            I touch these senses,

            A witch’s brew

            That throws trinkets in,

            Then I watch the Pandora;

            This is a gift

            That transforms the harshness of life,

            When I grasp it,

            I know I have it,

            It quickly disappears,

            And I cannot find it,

            I do not tempt fate,

            Like most,

            My successes are tempered

            By my many failures.
