'My pride was in my eyes,' he cried,
'Silence my honesty.'
"I thought I saw a man," she shrugged with a devilish look within her glance.
The Man her eyes could not see...
I have heard the summer winds calling and the cold news she foreshadowed as her whiskers crossed my brow,
And I, startled by her brush leaped to follow unexpectedly but apart from the trees near by,
I had no sign of where next she fled to cheat me of all she promised me,
But I knew what she left behind fighting not to escape her grasp;
A man lost below the shadows of gigantic trees,
Envying the might of nature's valiant decrees,
A man as yet without a plan but proud of his table of treats,
A man left to conquer what as yet he had not seen hidden between life's pleasures and uncertainty...
I hear your fears my father,
Your will befriends sure defeat,
Sincere in your intentions but weak to the cry of retreat.
I understand you could not shape me,
You left the task to the heavens where overwhelmed to achieve the feat
And for that I am truly glad,
Behold the Man in ME!
