Events echo on specific days
caught in your mind now set on fire
You map and promote a given talent
while people read, universally admire

For the written word subjects passing time
since printed ideas surpass an oral fashion
Like twigs carefully nestled by some mother bird
although any composition limits other expression

And soon enough a manly person does come along
claiming newly plus shocking interpretations
thus changing the mode, seemingly strong

So be not surprised thy profound frozen flair
will recede in our fostering memory
as if purposely diluted into fragile air
