Poetry Friday: Invocation by Clara Shanafelt

Current Mood: artistic
Current Song: Rapid Eye Movement by David Cook

O glass-blower of time,
Hast blown all shapes at thy fire?
Canst thou no lovelier bell,
No clearer bubble, clear as delight, inflate me-
Worthy to hold such wine
As was never yet trod from the grape,
Since the stars shed their light, since the moon
Troubled the night with her beauty?

- Invocation by Clara Shanafelt
