Feel the Spells
The term “enchanting” is adequate
to bear description’s encumbrance
when wise men are stopped in their congress
by walls of words when actions press
impressions are noted in life's journal
indexed to tell when pen is set
to paper's too ready to document
the secrets impressed for few to know.
Witness the difference between these two
breadth of charm and trip of spell
one is promise of life's allure
while on the other way is magical
this is confirmed when tongues are mute
austerities are spoke to fool the world
that steadfast are thoughts in the mind
when just the opposite says the heart.
You'll ask now of the word enchant
how it matters when it’s denied
or made to seem too mundane
consider now the wizardry
I’ll look beyond the muddle realm
with fascination of how they are
seeing charm when it presents
feel the spells as they are cast.
