Perverse the Eye

Sun in Gemini

Perverse the eye

That sees the wheel

And learns to fear

That Life can steal

By virtue of

The four above

We come to life

And from it move

Arising bright

From distant night

We feed and grow

And seek to know

Maturing strong

Enduring long

We make the world

Reflect our song

But voice must fade

Our notes degrade

And later years

Be passed in shade

From crown to toe

From ebb to flow

We feel the Life

Begin to go


Then inner eye

Beholds the lie

Which tutors teach

Of life on high

So, choose to live

Not die below

By being real

Within the flow


Perverse the eye

That sees the wheel

And learns to fear

That Life can steal

(c) Stephen Tanham, 2016
