Caprice of the wind

Kindle a lamp,
Looking for the:
Immortal flavour of,
A wavering flame;
To indulge.

An alcove,
In a wall special.
Secret chamber!
Faint light : feeble glow.
His devotions! Deep
His emotions! Keep
Dedicated just for:
Poetic heat.

Gardener weeds to let
A garden bloom.
But a poet creats them.
Chiseling out of air
Statue of words emplace.
Praying invisible,
Temples of faith.

Ah! So be it.
Amen! Oh poet!
Diffusion of a bell,
Echoing vibration with
Golden gable of:
Horizon mixed.

What a melody!
Evening offerings
Reechoing along the
Caprice of the wind.
Among the woods
A hermitage
