Take me with you, down a forest trail
Where canopies sigh, and upon their
Humid breath, feathered tufts sail…
Where, holding within with tortured care,
The blossoms, able to well their longing no longer
Let drip their perfumes into the air.
Infusing it with a tenseness so dark
It explodes into light! And all is laid
Bare. All is laid stark.
And as a butterfly shimmers through a light shaft,
It lets fly a thousand colours. A thousand
Emotions of a limitless heart.
As in a sparkling moment, heroes stand tall.
Larger than life! In illusions that are
Real. Are complete and are all.
For what’s realer than a gasp? Enchanted, free?
Than a snatch of stormy laughter! A moment of
Scarlet anguish. A moment of golden fury?
Oh! That desperate idea of a fantastic height…
Show me that it simply IS. As simple
As laughter. As simple as light.
As vivid as a gunshot. A fiery duel. A dance.
Vivid as a serenade. As swirling skirts
Of gossamer lace. A tread, a leap, a prance.
Take me with you, right atop a hill.
Take me to the horizon. Take me with you
On that Stage. Take me where you will.
