On Earning Respect
by Radko Vacek
Age Group: Adult
Think not that you,
In some ways still a child,
Can command the Elementals awesomely wild,
That you have the power in a few
Lines of poetry you chant,
To alter Old Sol's rays to a different slant,
Or to make the Lady of the Sea,
With all her well-deserved pride,
To tame the tumult of her tempestuous tide!
You must, over many years,
Gift by gift, gain authority,
Earn their loving respect
Until they finally connect
Well enough for them to bend their ears!
The sea-nymphs might dream
Of bending their knees
Before their Sorcerer to please,
Yet still will stay rude
And sling mocking jokes
Before, if ever, they yield, subdued!
Only through nightly eulogies
Dare hope to coax
Forth the spirits of the trees!
Author's Location: Toledo, Ohio
