Undaunted by the Weight of Time

November 21, 2009

How could your eyes outshine the sun
In the vision I have, undaunted
By the weight of time as
The roots of the past foment longing.

True it is that the weight of words
Lies at the heart of their origin.
Ostentatiously some seek sympathy while
Others only regretfully require regard.

Following the dictates of my heart
As influenced by the senses, I
Find it impossible to ignore these things:
Beauty, amiability, intelligence, compassion.
