Empyreal - Poem by Kate Wiley

On Chopin's 24 Etudes

These images before my eyes
Pass vaguely-shadows shimmering.
Bright spirits in a Delphic guise-
Not long here, quickly vaporing,

Exquisite forms not having names,
They drift without my catching them.
Some flash in meteoric storm,
But some just colors-epherim.
