Lyrical sonnet in the style of Edmund Spencer. The first lines of lament are spoken by Tithonus. One of 3 poems in the Grasshopper series.
"O troubled morns set sail this ship, search out hidden coves;
Down wrinkled cheeks roar tears to singe my heart,
Shall ne're we find eternity's treasure trove?
Life presses flesh: What's the play? Where's my part?"
Eos thy Dawn, Brightest Sister, Tithonus didst remark.
"Streak Northern Lights through my tormented skies;
Eternal youth's blossomed fruit dares turn dark
Myths snow then flake; melt fast like life's demise."
Zeus proclaims for all to hear: "I didst immortalize!"
"Lovest me ugly men? Grasshopper be thy name."
Eos, purest light, detesteth sneak surprise!
"Ugly men turn young, restor'd again to game!"
Comes mighty Zeus upon World's stage; maketh all things new;
Treasure troves of Life; Death, thou bid adieu!
