Zephyrus - Poem by Emmanuel George Cefai

'Howls of the night'

'I heard you'

'Your hear us heavens?
'
'Yes I dare hear your immensity
for to me is given
the Idea of Infinity

to me be given the Promethean fire'

'I will to howl more even in the
Dawn'

'You are immense'

'But I need Zephyrus; will you speak to him? '

'At your command
always, immense heavens;
a humble Poet Seer'

    Well, there's foreground action here with two named character, including one who could be my vademecum, the Poet
    Seer, who is both battered down often but resilient. The reference to Prometheus suggests a great enterprize, but it's unclear to me what this might be. If I could spread these short poems out on a table, I could see the whole for endeavor, but not one tiny bit at a time. If you could publish a Poet's Note, I could get a sense of this adventure
