To The Poet Blackbird


It seems to me,
(Or am I obtuse?)
But language often,
Is a ruse,
A way to hide,
What thought’s expressed,
A curtain drawn,
A floor length dress,
A fabric sown
To conceal,
A bursting breast
And how it feels;
Your men must be
A difficult lot,
Else why must you
Obscure the plot,
Come my unseen
Chirping bird,
Confess your heart
In simpler words

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
