The Truth Which Is With Love Amenable (Reprise)

From good intention, we find we have two
Motivations for ordinary speech
I either wish my love confirm to you
Or useful bit of knowledge seek to teach —
Either to comfort and to entertain
Or to enable better living for

Some tell truth in which love doth not remain
Reaping an argument and nothing more
Some tell of love and leave the truth behind
Let by the self but platitudes be quoth —
Indeed, our modern era seems full blind
To any thought we might redeem them both

In sooth, such an achievement certain be,
Among a folk expect each other lie
Name of consideration, politely,
Six times for each ten minutes that go by,
No simple balance easily achieved

But power of that word so great becomes
It usual in silence is received
Its glory the objecting mind benumbs
The while awakening a grateful heart
Which blossoms neath its sweetly warming ray
Allowing it enablement impart
In as smooth and resistanceless a way

As any other way available
To we confined this dim existence to:
The truth which is with love amenable
A statement that there is no answer to

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
