Realized InTent

Somehow this lovely day I be --
Through pride and through humility
Through independence with restraint
Through steadiness of good intent
In moving back into my tent
Communicative follow through
That all involved may healthy learn
Good boundaries, but with concern
Undiminished by circumstance --
Permitted now a further chance
Bought by my willingness to go
A bit away from where they are 
-- Not too close yet not too far --
With whom I do not wish to be at war
While hopefully they healing are
Of past misunderstandings' scars
Event'ually to rise above 
All impediments to love

I have an understanding note
From the child on whom I dote
Which since bought by tented life be
I come to it most happily

A poet is the strangest sort of soul
You in this life may e'er expect to meet
More broken even while more truly whole,
Innocently intending well, more sweet

Than any but a five year old should be
Unfit to meet a callused world's demand
Or to behave aught expediently
All grace in flight; an albatross on land

Do not the all too common error make
Do not fall into the too easy trap
Avoid the fatal egoic mistake
Imagining that poet be a sap

Powerful spirits classic and antique
Give voice when poets ope their mouths to speak
