As poet sighs and looks aloft

The moon brings light so pale and soft

The subtle shadows shape and form

Artistic shapes none uniform

And make for him a dark tableau

Upon the walls he does not know;

This hospital this place now home

Filled as it is with glass and chrome

A stranger in a strange new world

Upon the bed lies foetal curled;

His independence taken lost

Insanity the final cost

A single tear reflects his pain

As to the moon he howls again.
