Patti Masterman

A diadem of dust I wear

A diadem of dust I wear
Till polished, to completion-
As goes to mote, the single stone
Through times rough depredation.

A diadem of dust, I'll wear
In stony walls, that chamber
The baleful weight of time, I'll bear-
While love bear the remainder.

    Well written by an experienced poetess, the write offered me a smile of spiritual satisfaction; for our Patti is an excellent poet. I am the bear of the remainder, though! (woof!) (Report) Reply
