The First Look at David

The beauty there above, the beauty that’s within
The beauty once before me and the wages of sin
Sailing out toward the unknown in such a foggy dark
I’ve been dancing for so long through this life arc

The long dance, the courting, all those loving ways
Such romance to chance upon you in my working days
The arc of the heart led by the many joys of the flesh
The many steps to start, the depth of lives to enmesh

I sing my song and strum my guitar to the engines of desire
I yearn for that feeling of the moth drawn to flames of fire
You lightened so many nights and inspired so many days
I may never learn the secret of how to simply dance away

  1. The David Fell Trust proudly participates in the release of David’s poetry. None of us would have guessed that this San Francisco based attorney who lived in Corte Madera, in Marin County, California would have written any poetry. The Trust has agreed to release the poetry through this blog for those who might find interest in his reflections on the difficult state of affairs called love.
