Treasure Island

Michael Shepherd

(8.4.1929 / Marton, Lancashire)

unicorn 12


where the unlimited meets the limited,
and the unimagined meets the imagined;
where the unseen meets the seen,
and the eye meets the heart;

where the earth meets the seed,
and the seed meets the root;
where the root meets the earth;
and the flower meets the air;

where the heart meets the thought,
and the thought meets the sound;
where the sound meets the word;
and the word meets the voice;

where joy arises,
and where sorrow ends;
where love arises,
and the world is one;

where magic lives,
and miracles are law;
where childhood lives
and freedom is always now,

the unicorn is.

    Each of these unicorn pieces develops out of the previous one. So for me, an advance. For you, some repetition - so apologies! (Report) Reply

    This is so close to the wording to unicorn 11 that I had to print the earlier one out to compare them. Of course then I found the differences. This is simpler. I particularly like the last stanza 'where magic lives and miracles are law; ' How enchanting! Both 11 and 12 are treasures to keep.

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
