By Rodney Rountree
circa 1978
(Poem #8 from "Poem Time Capsule")

A spark of light - , far off in the distance.
A shimmering glow, alone in the dark.
What is its power, that holds my captive stare?
And what is the force that attracts my thoughts?
Is it a magnet that pulls me away,
Or is it a beacon, my guiding light?
A spark of light, in the dark it calls.
Why do I listen, or wonder at all?
