The Vagrant’s Romance
 
(A Reincarnation Phantasy)
 
This was the story never told 
By one who cared not for the world’s gold.
One of the idle and wise,
A beggar with unfathomable eyes.
 
by Eva Gore-Booth
On patrol 
Hunting
Hovering
Hovering...
Across the fields
His marks,
His eyes...
The Vagrant emperor
Moving...
Copulating...
And after,
Across the waters,
Laying eggs...
And moving foward.
 
Anax ephippiger,
Burmeister, 1839
