old soul eyes


Young Mozart

Oh, yes, Mozart has them
‘though he’s not past twelve
old soul eyes…
there in Greuze’s portrait
for he looked
through windows
in a music room
where he lived
no matter where
his father traveled him,
and about his pursed lips
a pout of insolence
he knew…he knew
as do young old souls,
he was unbounded…
save for a weighty sensing
of invincible in time

old…old souls know them
note assurance in a swagger
lifted chin…impatient hands
see fire behind the glance
olds allow risks…provide space
for evolving lodestars,
stand back and wait…
anticipate the blaze

Bonnie Marshall
