DRUM ROLL, PLEASE

The Great American Novel
Is the Everest of climbs;
In dreams, I’ve scaled it, word
By word, ever so many times.

And I have written lyrics
To the Music of the Spheres;
Its spell is magic for the soul….
Yet, tragic for the ears.

But one last tympany remains,
When, at my mortal ending,
Doth expire the greatest lyre
Since Orpheus descending.
