At Last


I swear, I can prove I’ve captured

The most elusive of creatures

Lo and behold,

A thesis.

Ageha


Man of the wind, my Ageha

Who in seeing sees from one

A jewel of grey as owl’s wing

From shoulder to skies above

 –

His beauty clad in nomad’s blue

Of the hearts without hearths

He speaks as cruel as he is kind

For his gaze goes sweeping far

 –

He with his splendid, silky halo

A veil bright as summer sun

He has known chains, my Ageha

And his smile is brittle-spun

Still he bends strong and fine

Winter fox in gauze and gold

A magnet in the fire’s glow

His secrets held untold

 –

And in knowing of his end

He is not mine to touch or sway

Man of the wind, my Ageha

On the wind carried away.
