On Signal Ridge

... tramping greenwood hemlock bowers,
but solo blue’s a jay piping up beware.
Then as if the overcast betrays o’er
in a backward glance up to halting azure,
a light needling gleam of sliver
so deep suffusing pierced to spirits dead
had that thought once never ever ceased --
to tramp up-country, step for secretly step
into boyish, buoyant hoplite steps.

Trebizond just over horizons,
back to Hellenes from the gates of Babylon
coldish northward streaming, like a sun
glints reverse, on upto mountain courses
a polis Greek over the Black “Sea! Sea!”*

Cosmos grazing distances into fargone realms,
framed alone about in civilized demeanor
cresting to snow dusted heights, calm
enjoying Nature’s bluff in a birch argent allée,
under nestling vault of sky refreshing wind and vigor,
winging on light of foot soaring too a visions aerie.
... trail flash up on Signal Ridge!
