Poetry Friday: Reality by Anna Wickham

Current Mood: creative
Current Song: Leverage score music by Joseph LoDuca

Only a starveling singer seeks
The stuff of songs among the Greeks.
Juno is old,
Jove's loves are cold;
Tales over-told.
By a new risen Attic stream
A mortal singer dreamed a dream.
Fixed he not Fancy's habitation,
Nor set in bonds Imagination.
There are new waters, and a new Humanity.
For all old myths give us the dream to be.
We are outwearied with Persephone;
Rather than her, we'll sing Reality.

- Reality by Anna Wickham

With a slip of the fingers, Jone changed your blog name into Bildungswoman. :-) Kind of fits with your poem today!
