for Lisa

alas, sweet maiden
of muted mien

thy muring shalt beest no more

unmoored from this merciless morass
of malformations unmerited

singeth freely thy song

rejoiceth
as thou now rejoineth
thy dearest brother

to saileth the astral seas

overseeing the ward
of those thou loveth
who has’t at each moment loveth thee

and e’er shalt this love fulminate
from hither ’til forevermore

wend forth now
with the freedom so longeth
denied by life’s burdens
