    Ode to Reptilia and the Reptile God

    Reptile and . . . . . . . . . (Ok, so, I have been rusty so I think this gets better as it goes on.) . . . . 18 verses, 70 lines, etc. . . a bit less than an hour.




    Ode to Reptilia and the Reptile God


    Dearest friend of my heart --
    Sweetest friend of the heart --
    Though we are apart -
    Woven into nature's art

    From childhood my friend;
    Turtle, spirit of the world --
    Cousin, the deity serpentine,
    The heart of music and life woven -

    Reptile, oh - and reptile God -
    Hiding in the thicket of Life
    The secret of perfect Peace
    The highet secret above.

    Ah - beautiful is life,


    Ancient friend to mammal,
    And ancestor of the bird -
    Dear childhood friend,
    Never spoke a word;

    You are close to the bird -
    And home in forest growth;
    Peaceful guardian of the land,
    A mis-represented animal -

    To all of your kind I gift --
    Verse, heart to lift and uplift --
    You are completely bright my mind,
    You shine in from time to time --

    And woven in the world,
    You are quite unmistakeable,
    It's my blessing to implore you --
    To shine in my life some more, you.

    ah -- bountiful is life;


    Reptile Bright and grafted Royalty,
    Hey, you have got my loyalty.
    From out of time you came --
    Timeless - without name.

    One day a year is little enough -
    To adore thee -- oh my friend;
    Your heart is heaven's trough,
    Your timelessness no end.

    My eyes spark and brighten wide,
    When I ever felt your presence,
    Heard your familiar rustle --
    My breath. . . more than a little.


    ah, heavenly is life --

    Reptile - perfectly - peace's master.
    Your heart - my heart - one pastor.
    I close my eyes to feel your thread
    When I am blind you see infrared.

    Reptile - oh, you are lightning fast --
    You also have infinite patience;
    It drew me to your presence,
    Master of present and past.

    So many times you lived before,
    Time basked upon the shore, --
    Perfect peace, glad to be
    A perfect symphony.


    Peaceful, beautiful --


    Nature's creation, perfect, unchanging,
    I could never exhaust the store --
    Of thoughts of heart-felt love -- nor
    Complete a sentence of your praise for. . .

    All words for you are words for beauty,
    And praise for you praise for the divine --
    Your heart and symphony are of nature,
    In perfect rhapsody of the sublime.

    Oh my friend -- from now 'til time,
    Your life and light beyond description --
    The circles of your heart - stillness,
    And movement - an inscription.

    I merely pale for lack of words,
    Close friend of mine, from timeless time,
    -- And so I will sing to all the winds --
    When all around me, all my friends,

    Mother's peace and quiet, sublime -- (the)
    Oldest friendship, yours and mine.
