From the Gypsies Metamorphos'd

by Ben Jonson

the faiery became upon you,
the starres to glister on you,
A Moon of light,
In the Noone of night,
Till the Fire-Drake hath o're-gone you.

The Wheele of fortune guide you,
The Boy with the Bow beside you,
Runne aye in the way,
Till the Bird of day,
And the Lucklyer lot betide you.

featured poem number two:

The Way

by Edwin Muir

friend, i have lost the way,
the way leads on,
is there another way
the way is one.
i must retracee the track,
it's lost and gone.
back, i must travel back,
none goes there, none.
then i'll make here my place,
(the road leads on)
stand still and set my face
(the road leads on)
stay here, for every stay,
none stays here, none
I can not find the way,
the way leads on
Oh, please I have passed
that journey's done
and what will come at last?
the road leads on!

I am happy to be a part of this slam. I am reading everyone's work. However, I am unable to make comment on all. Thus far, I've enjoyed the set of 5 haiku!

Blessings.
