Illusions


Dreamless life;
Bleak as the dreariest night
Encloaked in illusions
Woven to be believed
By the weariest mind.

Life lived in shadows,
A farce believed in sorrow;
As the boat capsized
And hopes came tumbling into
The enraged sea.

Illusioned world,
A sightless one;
Like a blind's dream of beauty;
Beauty seen behind closed eyes.

Reality;
An illusion nonetheless,
As the reaper's face is unveiled
And darkness enshrouds all that lives

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
