This Ballad, So Bold - Poem by Maurice Harris

This Ballad, So Bold!

I may only imagine how beautiful you are;
For far too long, our thoughts need travel too far
Afield to reach one another, Father to Daughter-
The distance, made greater still, with ignorance as it's fodder;
I may only imagine: I may not now recognize
The sound of your voice- I thusly realize
That I have not heard you utter a single word-
Though, want for same, the years have not deterred.
I may only imagine your smile's brilliance;
Mentation upon same fortifies my heart's resilience,
So that I might not otherwise be drawn asunder-
One day again, I shall rediscover the world that is your wonder;
This fortuitous futurity has been fanciful has been fancifully foretold-
I am ever-emboldened by this ballad, so bold!
