HONEST SONG'S MEASURE

You , the lonely one,
Upon your dung heap of ideals:
Lost dreams and hopes.

What oeuvre do you serve,
What illustrious name is yours:
You, the lonely one?

None, but that fierce flame,
Which burns and lights eternally:
All lost dreams and hopes.

There you chose to reign,
Outside all worldly gain:
You, the lonely one.

Wary of proud public plea,
Whose eyes failed to see:
Lost dreams and hopes.

Denied bright insight
Which separates seed from chaff:
You, the lonely one. . .

They nailed to the pains,
Of your labored craft or art
Lost dreams and hope.

True art's sole treasure
Was your honest song's measure:
You, the lonely one
Lost in dreams and hope.

Homage to Dylan Thomas – Van Gogh – Modigliani
And all lonely genius ahead of its time.
