The Flute of Illusion ..

The Flute of Illusion ...

Life follows an echoing flute
Heard in the myriad minds of men.
The unseen Player the distant mute
Forever plays beyond the human ken.
Through thousand halls and past collonades
My feet do wander in wild quest
To the haunting flute that waylays
Today's labour. In maddening zest
The wanderer moves beneath the magic spell
Through countless paths for the Searchless.
And turns to rest beside the eternal well
At the endless shores of Recess.

Omar Hjumas.
