The Tin Man -For Ross McCague=

His arms arenít warm enough to embrace
nor are they strong enough to move mountains,

but they will mesmerize you with a silver grace.
His words often as cold as his mind, and within them
you might be surprised to find a dry-iced fire
that can sear your skin, cloud your way.
He set his squeaky feet on the gold road,
and you can follow him or not, as you choose.

He may not be your prophet, but he can deliver
you to the wizard.
And if youíre brave enough to touch him
you will find a heart banging against
the cage door that needs just a drop of oil.

This is an exceptionally wonderful poem.  I'm not sure what it means -- but just by itself it means enough for me.  The flow of words is simply gorgeous and makes for lovely reading.  A treasure.  --David

I have come to realise just what an honour it is to have you posting here, makes me feel like chucking my pen in the bin to be honest.   Bill H
