Fancy Of The Muse (in memory of Karen, my sister)

In the breakers of the sea
you hop on wave and surf
Watching you is for esprit though now clear of the earth

In the darkness of the night
you dance on moon and star
Watching you is to delight though now in space quite far

In the fragrance of the rose
you waft on air and breeze
Watching you is to repose though now by unspoiled ease

In the gambol of the ploy
you play on heart and soul
Watching you is to enjoy though now for wondrous role

In the music of the score
you sing in tune and song
Watching you is to adore though now pleasing a throng

In the fancy of the muse
you tap on wit and mind
Watching you is to bemuse though now free spirit kind

In the shimmer of the sun
you shine on ray and beam
Watching you is to be won though now in the Supreme
