Siren


You are a rich man's toy,
An ambitious man's dream,
A poor man's fantasy,
And a weak man's pitfall,

You are a dare devil's Playground,
A chaste man's breaking point,
A gambler's good-luck charm,
A chess player's queen,

Men are like moths for you,
Helplessly drawn to your beam,
Excuse my aloof demeanor,
But illumination doesn't attract me,

There really is no magic to it,
I am simply none of these men,
so you remain but a siren to my ears,
Wailing away in a godforsaken city.

poet Joyce Kilmer

(For the Rev. James J. Daly, S. J.)

Bright stars, yellow stars, flashing through the air,
Are you errant strands of Lady Mary's hair?
