Two Songs–Proteus and Ariel

Proteus–Song

Hoellischer_Proteus

Proteus by the sea

Dissembles prophesy

Prophesy 200

By changing to words

Words giphy

The reckless goatherds

Goat Human giphy

Carousing joyously,

       Shouting, “Proteus by the sea!

       Proteus by the sea!”

Colin.Raff_.fount_

Protean diversity

Allows a nation to see

In its multiple kinds

Of peoples those binds

That strengthen its unity,

hands

       Shouting, “Proteus by the sea!

       Proteus by the sea!”

Whether lion or snake he be,

Be Right There giphy

Whether water or tree she be,

proteus

When both merge together

doubles

They transform each other

PANSEXUAL 200

To pure androgyny,

       Shouting, “Proteus by the sea!

       Proteus by the sea!”

Ariel  — Song

Prospero:Ariel 220px-William_Hamilton_Prospero_and_Ariel

Relinquish the magic cloak and lay

       The wand aside,

magic-cloak-of-oz-fine-to-be-king

Colonial Master, so that I may

       In wood reside.

Ariel 01381

Slaughtered on shore, my spirit astray

       Like fireflies glides

singleton_ariel

Crooked paths and raging spray

       A tempest rides.

Having you to love and obey

       Freed me to evolve.

Ariel [Roddy McDowell] dsk03988_lzn3-1

Take your power over me away

      And let me dissolve.

[August 2013]

Dr. Mike
