Was There A Time

Rating: 3.0
Was there a time when dancers with their fiddles
In children's circuses could stay their troubles?
There was a time they could cry over books,
But time has sent its maggot on their track.
Under the arc of the sky they are unsafe.
What's never known is safest in this life.
Under the skysigns they who have no arms
have cleanest hands, and, as the heartless ghost
Alone's unhurt, so the blind man sees best.

NOOOOOO! How can you use a computer generated voice to recite poetry? Poetry is ART. It requires the human voice to convey it to humans. https: //www.saramorsey.com

Who are the maggot and the heartless ghost who leave tbe blind man seeing and the dancers with their fiddles, who leave us under the arc of the sky unsafe, is it life itself, and all that befalls those who live? The visionary poet sees too much, and utters glimpses, warning, that what is never known, is safest in this life.
