Poetry Friday: Didn't You Ever Search For Another Star? by Alfred Starr Hamilton

Who are you? Weren't you their prisoner in the sedge dark?
Where has been your search for freedom?
Will you count the trees again in these dense woods
Wherever you have been tonight?
Will you look backwards where you have been?
And tell me whoever you are.
What have been your escapes?
Nevertheless freedom is as ever an intense girl angel
That speaks to me one in the inane wilderness
Where has been your phantasmagoria?
Are the dark trees at war with the darklike trees?
Where has been your light
Where has been your swordy well,
Where has been your darklike table?
Did you ever search for another star?

- Part III of Didn't You Ever Search For Another Star? by Alfred Starr Hamilton
