The Poet and the Muse by catch---22 The Poet and the Muse by catch---22
There’s an old tale wrought with the mystery of Tom
The poet and his muse
And the magic lake which gave a life
To the words the poet used.

Now the muse she was his happiness
And he rhymed about her grace
And told her stories of treasures deep
Beneath the blackened waves.

‘Till in the stillness of one dawn
Still in its mystic crown
The muse she went down to the lake
And in the waves she drowned.

And now to see your love set free
You will need the witch’s cabin key
Find the lady of the light gone mad with the night
That’s how you reshape destiny.

The poet came down to the lake
To call out to his dear
‘When there was no answer
‘He was overcome with fear.

He searched in vain for his treasure lost
And too soon the night would fall
And only his own echo
Would wail back at his call.

And when he swore to bring back his love
By the stories he’d create
Nightmares shifted in their sleep
In the darkness of the lake.

And now to see your love set free
You will need the witch’s cabin key
Find the lady of the light still ravin’ in the night
That’s how you reshape destiny.

In the dead of night she came to him
With darkness in her eyes
Wearing a mourning gown
Sweet words as her disguise.

He took her in without a word
For he saw his grave mistake
And vowed them both to silence
Deep beneath the lake.

Now if its real or just a dream
One mystery remains
For it is said on moonless nights
They may still haunt this place...

Another beautiful "Invocation" Dennis.. from your wellspring of affirmation of that mystery which is greater than the single I.
But from that which inspires the sum total in all of us. In invocation, to call forth consciousness .. inexhaustible and incorruptible.
Perpetually fertilized, virgin and nurse of all that is, chaste and lascivious, pure and revelling, ineffable, nocturnal, sweet, breather of fire, foam of the sea! Thou who accordest grace in secret called from within the magic lake beneath the blackened waves.

that mystery,the mystery, it's always there. just on the other side of the looking glass... or in the next pair eyes that smile at us. everything is part of it.
