  • Muse
    by Erin Metcalf

    Swift-soaring sigh of sky and sea,
    Fly to me!
    To me, alight on weightless wings
    Too proud to bend thy slender form to kings.

    All-seeing eyes behold thy flight
    And delight in thee,
    Thy wondrous wings too great for kings to see
    Apart from woven weft of deftly crafted tapestry.

    The breathless tales the bards would tell of thee
    If they could see!
    The tongues of lightless lyricists lie still
    Aground until thou givest wings to sing thy will.

    Erin Metcalf is a sculptor of fantasy creatures who occasionally dabbles in writing. She has a husband and one furry cat-child.
