The Gaiety Of Reflection - Poem by RIC S. BASTASA

'Irony is the gaiety
of reflection
and the joy of wisdom.'

Anatole France (1844-1924)

ON that clear day
on that clear
pond
i see the face of irony
it is myself
and it is not myself
both
in the paradox
of belief and
disbelief

there is joy
in the wisdom
of acceptance
in the domain
of my own
laughter having
seen
what i am
and what i am not
what i ought to be
and what
i want to be
it makes sense
in this
loneliness.
