Oberons Wonder
poetic scribble by Bob Axell 2009


Oberon once knew the source
Of light and darkness
Of peace and wars

And all the pieces he faltered on
The weak and valid
The free and strong

the work that took both light and night
And day and dark and sacrifice

The way we live is surpriseful so
We die when all
At most must know

Our peak of voyage
It is the end
Can we reach our absence

Can we climb
To the virtue we lost

I wonder what
The climb
Would have cost
