Quixote & Sancho



Cervantes Redux




That most gentle knight


(fierce tho’ his wrath in anger)


rides forth still with loyal Sancho at his side


(or perhaps a few paces back, a song on his lips)


in search of Great Deeds and Adventures


(the Don of La Mancha thinking wide, full thoughts


which keep alive forever the Quest).


You may chance upon them


some drowsy summer afternoon, turning a dusty bend in the road;


Quixote ever ready with noble words, valorous acts,


Pancho ever the voice of reason.


Salute them, as I have, at every turn where they might


have passed . . .


Salute them with the deathless knight’s own words:


            “I prefer a wise madness to a foolish sanity.”

About j. j. marino

As a creaky & cranky a-social agoraphobic anchorite, living in seclusion in the Great North Woods & keeping centered by the Power of the Written Word, a blog would seem to be a fat pitch in my strike zone.
