First verse by Dragonfly, next and every other
verse by Lady Bleaux.


The radiance of youth
Fades into softly glowing,
Fiercely hot embers

Fiercely hot embers
burns with soft flickering flames
Like secret desires ...

Like secret desires
Flowers bloom in hidden spots
On the forest's floors

On the forest's floors
lies mysteries of the past
Among fallen leaves

Among fallen leaves
Seeds sprout and reaching skyward
Renew life's promise

Renew life's promise
with each vibrant breath of Spring
Embrace loveliness

Embrace loveliness
with thanksgiving for the gift
Use both of your arms

Use both of your arms
with harmonious action
Power with less strain

Power with less strain
is what the weight lifter wants
Don't drop that barbell!!

Don't drop that barbell
Oops, you gotta be lacking
In strength and balance ...

In strength and balance
Is the way to walk your path
Moderate all things

Moderate all things
else you become fanatic ...
Then folks avoid you!

Then folks avoid you
If you're a bit different
Fear of the unknown

Fear of the unknown
Lures the imagination
To shadowy realms ...

To shadowy realms
and sun drenched fields of flowers
The mind goes seeking

The mind goes seeking
stimulation and pleasure
To prevent boredom ...

To prevent boredom
Take one full cup of humor
Drink with a good friend

Drink with a good friend
and raise your glasses to hope
health and happiness

Health and happiness
Ebb and flow like the sea tide
In life's slow cycle

In life's slow cycle
ever turns futures and fates
Predestination

Predestination
The biggest "cop-out" ever
I couldn't help it

I couldn't help it
the devil made me do it
Blame my evil twin ...

Blame my evil twin
for everything that's wicked
He has all the fun

He has all the fun
Whines the humorless coward
He pales at a dare

He pales at a dare
and loses the zest of life
To win you must try

To win you must try
focused determination
Strength of heart and mind
