LOVE IS NOT IGNORANT By Karen Marie Christa Minns

I am the Bard in the boat,
constantly poling,
Out on the midnight waters,
Spectral Warrior,
applauding your lengthened strides.

Ever watchful,
Ever worried: casting stones upwards,
into the clouded sky.
These are spells against the Shadows,
the fiery walk and the Night.

Love is far from ignorant.

It reads hazy patterns of the Days.
It is Patient in its wisdom, ever steadfast
As it lays.

I am the Bard sailing
over misty waters.
I am Constant
on the waves.
