1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 The grace of genius
In the blood
Subtle as a glance
The intuitive knowledge
Announced with
The undisputed joy
The twinkle in the eyes
The generous heart
Pouring its power
Into the eager legs
The willing limbs
The 11th commandment
Made flesh
Never growing old
Beneath the mortal sun
Running with axis balanced
