For the dverse open night, a poem that I call Three Squared for want of a more attractive name—three stanzas of three lines with three rhymes and three x three syllables in each line.
There are marvels we have never seen
And places where we have never been
And things we say that we didn’t mean.
So I gave you clouds to build us dreams
I whispered songs, in bubbling streams
I showed you a sun with rainbow beams.
Dark is the day, full of fear the night,
I gave you my heart to shine its light
But you couldn’t see it dancing bright.
