Actually a repost, fiddling around with old poems, and the new interface :)

Will o' the Wisp

What is that shining light I see?
That Will o' Wisp now floating free
From yonder dark and muffling fog;
A glimpse of warmth within the bog

Will I be lost and doomed for sure;
If I fall prey and grasp this lure?
I feel compelled to take this chance;
To chase the star that snares by glance

This is no hidden pot of gold;
No story that your grandma' told
I'll hunt this light to end and on;
Indeed; it is the spell of dawn!
