IX

That you have known the tender Eve is clear,
For certain songs describe a loving she:
An angel in your heart, you plain revere
And try to win again with humble plea.
And since one’s anima is not contrived
But, ere projection, comes from deep within,
Your famed androgyny may be derived
From a profound connection with this twin.
Which means potential empathy is great,
Providing ego can be well controlled
And the ringmaster we have seen of late
Allowed to show his burnished heart of gold.
I’m pleased to greet you; hope you’ll drop the mask
And face your soul, which knows your highest task.
Sympathy for Sir MicK
