I once almost wed an invisible lad.


My mother and father were sure I was mad.


He gave me a lily, translucent and white


And he said, "I am here, only out of your sight."


We went strolling along in the bright boardwalk sun


He gave me a bear he'd invisibly won.


Oh, the hours I spent, as our courtship progressed


With my Mother and Dad and our "is-he-there?" guest.


And slowly (but quickly) with needle-sharp joy


I realized I loved the invisible boy.


So one night, I feigned a farewell at the door


And crept to my room to be with him some more.


And I didn't cry out, but I kissed him instead


When I felt the invisible boy in my bed.


And he kissed me right back, put my hands to his form


Unseen, but so beautifully, wonderfully warm.


But then-- such an awful confession to make!


It was then that I made my most mournful mistake.


As we lay there entwined in our twilight embrace,


I said, "Darling, I wish that could see your face."


Though I meant no offence and had no ill-intent,


The most meaningful meanings are often not meant.


He silently rose from my arms, and I then


Never saw my invisible lover again.


Long years I have spent, crossing all the world's span


But how does one find an invisible man?



So if you should meet, in your paths wide and free


A man you can sense and can touch, but can't see--


Perhaps contemptlating the heavens above him--


Would you, oh, would you please tell him... I love him?

Once upon a land called Umbra

There grew a shadow-tree

Casting cool and friendly darkness

For all the Shadow-folk to see.

It grew from earth as black as ink

With bark of silver-gray

Its dusky leaves sang in the breeze

That whispered by all day.

The Longrays and the Midlights both

Took rest within the shade,

And even subtle Noondays

From its boughs were not forbade.

But came the half-expected day,

When harmony was halted

A lowly Gloam, of name unknown,

Observed the tree and exhalted:

"Oh, what a lovely glade this is!"

He cried with sudden cheer,

"I'll...

You cannot domesticate sentences.

Believe me, I gave it a shot.

They're adorable when they're just fragments,

But complete, they're emphatically not.

They'll leave subjects all over your carpet

And consume every object in sight

There'll be predicates on every inch of your couch

And believe me, the bastards can bite.

Your walls will be splattered with commas

The stains are as stubborn as ink

The overused colons, I'm sure you can guess--

Your houseguests will flee from the stink.

So take my advice, gentle reader

Take to heart every word that I've...
