Lost and Found

I lost a set of curtains and the dust in them, too
I lost a candelabra, it was still lit; a fire hazard
I lost the sound of blue and even though
I held it fast, it slipped away like trying to grasp water
I lost a ring of steel, what I'd use it for
I still don't know, will never know I lost it
I lost my marbles, they're rolling on the floor around my head
Glass and beads and funny things,
I'll never know I lost it

I found a crazy world hidden beneath a rock
I found a place alone but for imaginary friends
I found a dream in quiet darkness and lost it
when my eyes flew open
I found a new cereamic, fired around the edge
I found the taste of winter, cold and blue
I found a crevice in the lake and almost fell all the way through
I found a pencil even though I lost all the rest
I found a gleaming memory hidden under the bed so far
I'd almost forgotten
I found somwhere to keep it safe

What I lost was not important
I found something even better than marmalade
Which is a great accomplishment.

Poem of the Day

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

We are as clouds that veil the midnight moon;
How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
