In oscine song and frangipani whiffs
the missing part is what he sees
Mikado‘s craving ichor of the gods,
to live forever is his quest.
He cannot hear the birds.
Or feel the smell of bloom
he knows about the mortal doom.
with age his tendon’s growing stiff
He need a devil’s cure to beat the odds
A mise in blood to pave the paths
to linger till silurian age.
But still one day he reaches meadows
full of asphodel and realizes that he still
prefers forgotten frangipani smells
and that oscine songs are rare in hell.
This week I thought I should write something for my own lqw wordle. If you are interested a new word is posted every day of the week by twitteraccount @LOQWACIOUS. I happen to also be hosting that one. I link this to Open Link Monday at Real Toads
