Cygnus Delta - Poem by Kevin Patrick

Through a tall grove, by a mouse stream,
Basking on a knoll in noonday
Watching, as the sunlight drowns in green
Living in a bubble out from pain

Little warbler, high above me, sings forever chirpy songs,
Although I can't see, I feel it all the same
Ripples forming in crystal waters, calling your Naiad mother
Laughing, as a child's free to escape

Driving off to Cygnus Delta
traveling without a charter
a thousand light years where I'm dreaming
Free to roam the stars outside of space and endless time

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Cygnus, the Swan is the north cross because of its shape, one legend is that Cygnus Cygnus is a friend of Phaethon, the son of Apollo, the sun god. Phaethon fell into the river Eridanus, trying to drive the sun-gods chariot. Cygnus dove repeatedly into the water to search for Phaethon. Out of pity, Zeus turned the boy into a swan.

    Wow stellar. Whisks me into another galaxy i must say. Awesome flying muse.
    And the mythical take is entertaining. I like the sound of cygnus. (Report) Reply
