a poem by ROY Douglas KNEALE, UK

So a thought was born and blossomed anon
From a hazy gleam to consuming glare
Then allowed - by the Everlasting One? -
To breathe the while of ethereal air
As a wight of but hapless skin and bone
Cast forth in flesh with no power of its own!
Thus convened, a contrivance lively swayed
(By Omnipotent spectra beamed thereto?)
But from first bright glow soon began to fade
As all novelty and delight withdrew,
And consigned to realms of mere empty air
When the thought “I am” had passed by for eér!
Does a thought that has wilted leave no trace?
Not a sign or mark; just an empty space?

R.D.K. Cat. No. G501.
