Publius Ovid Unmasked xx xxx xx Original 07 23 2013

PUBLIUS OVID UNMASKED:



Learning began with little literature available
But from the poetry of Publius Ovid unmasking
The approaching spirit over waters of baptism
We could not foresee Marvin Gaye and Smokey
Robinson collaboration with Miles’ sweetness of
Sound dying in the distant winds hung round
When fear was almost laughter and almost tears
None were but were to be –becoming gifts
Of laughter at the comedy - and gifts of strength
Long after Menes unmasked the sinking of
Light divided from the night to the sinking of
The sun into the underworld of flight unmasking
Itself as to rise from deep pits of old ground
Fear returns in the face of tragedy and sadness
Aristotle’s drama –Gibran’s rap of forgotten takes
Shakespeare’s never evermore should love come
Together - to make love to no love that forsakes
Pope - Rousseau –Jay-Z –Snoope Lion - Diana
Nefertiti –Eve - and Sarah will teach me tonight
If you didn’t smell the roses how will you know?
When your hair is burning in the dark and the
Soul stirs full of incense –speak in tongues.
