Kissed By The Spirit Of Innocence. - Poem by David Lacey

Our Lady Moon come sing, come smile,
Turning blood red rivers in your arms.
From rising tides, running to hide we leave
Her reflections to quiver upon ripples in the sky.

God’s flesh may open the way for you,
You may find it on your own.
A third kingdom lies in wait for you,
There lies in wait an empty throne.

Perched upon a toadstool blessed,
Kissed by the spirit of innocence.
There lies the doorway of mystery undressed
Flow without your senses.

Your smile a sweet ‘I told you so’
Your form as pure as virgin snow
Threads of radiance make the green child blush
Still he’s in no rush to kiss the girl
Just to have her know the way he feels.

Soulful eyes absorb the sky,
As they reflect upon an emotion blue.

The wise old fool beckons us to turn our framework
For now our composition leaves our dreams suspended
Trying as we are to understand why she left us stranded
Upon this island of the sky.

To all who dream the soles of their feet away,
Ageless rainbow maidens within the blackthorn
Await you in their circle, they dance until the dawn.
