For a dear friend

a poem by Keith Lumbard, UK

Disburdening from that which weighs you down,
Such signs of strength breeds positivity,
Tis knavery that constitutes a clown,
And blush befalls a fool’s audacity,

Even Da Vinci’s Mona Lisa’s smile,
Oh aeon chef-d'oeuvre immortalised,
Do imperfections senescent defile,
Until her beauty’s depth is realised,

To praise of one aloft, ingratiates,
When warm poetic lines you’re very own,
A luminaries craving satiates,
From fruitful embryonic words you’ve sewn,

Mysterious the unobserved, unknown,
Torments we left behind now you have flown,

Footnote:
Aeon chef-d'oeuvre = the most outstanding work of a creative artist or craftsman.
Senescent = growing old.
