(The actor contemplates his latest role, Artemis Fowl)

(Poem by Wendy Howe )

As the wind sleeps, his eyes draw insight
from the evening sun. Its gold is stolen
by the landscape and used to polish
water and pines softly showing
how stillness turns magical
when the actor must elude age
and pilot a boy’s imagination.

Light cooling from the rays
of a setting star
reveals the discreet brilliance
of thought and scene. Thomas dreams
about Ireland and the schoolmaster
whose fiction spawned a young thief outmaneuvering fairies, the rare
genius he will soon portray
on audio CD.

Like himself, the author must often stand
dazzled by the magic of lake and shade,
the way nature holds her breath
prompting adults to listen then seize
the moment’s voice, the sly
and long-traveling echo of youth.
