Starry Knight - Poem by Jeffrey Philip Clegg

As a Viking, I marauded the seas for
golden treasure and women
As a slave, I yearned for a
rainbow of freedom and choices
As a hungry wolf, I hunted for flesh
and drank from sparkling brooks
As an eagle, I soared above my
various selves and became a Gryphon
As a galactic spirit,
I exploded into constellations
now guiding me
through the night
so I can search for
again tomorrow.
