Moments With The Gods

Oh what ecstasy!
Overt joy in the time of sorrow
When at the time I aught ‘grieve
for the marketplace of the world is filled with thorns
yet I sit forlorn in my own reverie
even when love sweet turns sour
when the longest journey seems so short a time
I quake in ecstasy as though of ingested opium.
