To You, My Muse

My poetess, my muse, you see
I am your page, your verse to free.
Convey your lyrics, rhyming eyes,
the couplets but your touch supplies
so I might grasp our song and sing
of beauty, truth in every thing,
then reach past dreams, mere metaphor,
surpass perceptions evermore,
transcending silence, time, and fires
to learn those words your love inspires.
