Last night
I was half asleep
singing my new songling

O Maria Maria Maria
I was doggy tired
@81 old age
could not come out of my cage
O what a midnight rage
my dreams kept me engaged
now I can't recall
those words which come
if at all like a rainbow
from a distant horizon
blind eyes cant see

Will one day a Milton I be
or deaf as Beethoven was they say
composed musical poems all day
was maestro of his day

Deaf as me may be
one day
Lord Byron
Milton Beethoven or Wordsworth
I could be

Shakespeare is to the world so dear
him furious I won't like to see

But Robert Frost
I could be
frozen as ice is in Iceland
yet most say
Pablo's duplicate
what an exceptional sign of glee
for me

This is really special and so lovely to read. From a distant horizon? Instead of distance? Just a thought.

You are all you have spoken of and more, you have the most unique talent that i most enjoy, your ending is really wonderful.

Thank you...Teddy

Hi, Lovedly,
You are correct - not all dreams come true. Many times they take a detour. This is a very energetic poem, full of anticipation and desire. I noticed the word 'songling'. I'm not familiar with this word, but I really like it!
Thank you!

beautifuller ==a boy as beautiful as her

Hope you know
