Crossed Examination
by Michael Romani

With a star crossed examination
Of all the available information
There are questions that arise
Seen gently through a poet's eyes

With twenty love poems written
It's clear that a poet is bitten
Deeply in a song of determined despair
That catches hold and lingers there

There sits a man with pen in hand
Who dreams of his Chilean land
In the hesitant technicolor dreams
Dancing on discordant moon beams

He rose to become one of the twenty
In a world that offered more than plenty
That filled the book of Western canon
With it's search for wisdom since man began in

Earnest to reach for the sprinkled stars
That mankind eyes and dreams on from afars
His was a life of perseverance and enthusiasm
Though draped in solemn cloaks of dire pessimism

There in the contemplative book of twilight
The poet Neruda wrote into the blackness of night
There in his politics and dangerous poetry
Was a man who lived beyond the means of his dignity
