My art blog, well, the blog where I post some of my artistically creative output. (Mostly the fanart.) I'm sorry it's so hard to read the tags, I couldn't find the theme I intended to use.Who the hell is this person??? Main blog? About this blog. My MAGNUM OPUS!!! Disconcert me.
A music I can hardly hear
Falls to my ears from some strange place
Is it the house just next to mine
Or is it from that source of song
Which plays for those who give it back
For those with talents far beyond
What any child dreams until
We hear them and are stricken dumb
And weep for fear these sounds will stop
That source of song that artists know
Were it a river, I a weed
I sap its dregs to give me life
But never can I swim in it
(Unless a flood sweeps up my roots
The song dilutes, and then I drown)
This music that I cannot hear
Burns through my veins, a wish, a thought
A started sentence stopped too soon,
Untimely death, my pointless heart.
Lo! Thoughts that I myself have thought
Another voice so sweetly sings.
My world is bounded by two things, one is a door and one a screen
And past the door the hallway goes, and past the screen, the world sings.
The door is white, the screen is sheer, and through the doorway nothing comes
but I, or other hearts more suited to this world.
The window, not a passage, is guarded by the screen
And glass obscures the screen but I, not liking it, must always push it up
It muffles air and thought, I cannot breathe.
My screen is not an exit—much too low.
The landlord’s son lives in the cottage just behind the house.
It is my view, it and its sprawled-out untended poorly-hacked garden
which is too good for figs or roses
so daisies must suffice.
