The first step is to banish fear

To its accustomed place on

The third shelf where

It can transform into a

Reasonable caution that

Whispers instead of shouts.

The second is to wield the bright

Pen, paint in words, creating

Sensation with each syllable, set the

Art within free from the cage

Fear placed it in,

And follow as it flies.

Then the ideas will dance upon

The page and leave wondrous tracks,

Glittering there to catch the wandering

Mind and show it all the wild places

Within its own heart, the tender

Places only words can reach.
