ἀποθανεῖν θέλω

ah you laughing flittering wraiths

who grace my memory

with smiles and beckoning

and dance ahead

I see you

 

I long for you

but cannot catch

and dance with you

until that fateful joyful day

all burdens slip away.

Thanks, Jennifer - sometimes I think I've glimpsed the wraiths too - then they dissolve away.
it will be tweaked once it cools down (I have an alternative version which may or not be better - time will tell).
The title comes from the prologue to 'The Wasteland'.

Liked this one! Very evocative and delicate - can almost see the laughing flittering wraiths.
