Only Apollo

Only Apollo

 

“El arcano, el increible Apolo….”

 

–Borges

 

He kept his scansion straight, his rhymes exact.
Only Apollo ever really knew.
Scornful of fashion, even more of tact,
he kept his scansion straight, his rhymes exact.
He saw in every syllable an act
of vast significance. Who had a clue?
He kept his scansion straight, his rhymes exact.
Only Apollo ever really knew.

 

–Tom Riley
