[Poem] New Myths of The Northern Land

"Dream," I said,
"Aren’t you tired of making new legends
That no one but I ever hears?"
"Bones," she said,
"Aren’t you ever tired of asking questions
That only I can answer?"

I went back to bed,
Waiting for the new king to arrive,
His talking mirror filled

With dire pronouncements of flame.
From On The Other Side Of The Eye, 2007

February 24th, 1909 is the birthday of August Derleth, a noted Wisconsin writer.
