The Poem

Post by Colin J... » Wed Sep 02, 2009 3:07 am

WHEN I AWOKE, THERE IT WAS
A POEM LIKE A SEED
IN MY MIND’S EYE, FOR NO ONE ELSE,
FOR ME, AND ME ALONE TO READ

SHOULD I ARISE AND WRITE IT DOWN
SUBMIT IT TO THE WORLD?
OR FALL ASLEEP AGAIN, FORGET IT,
DENY IT EVER TO BE HEARD

THERE’S NO ONE ELSE TO BLAME THEN
BUT, IT’S HARDLY SUCH A SIN
FOR THOSE THAT EVER READ IT
WILL EITHER FROWN OR GRIN

YOU SEE, I GIVE IT LIFE THAT NIGHT
I ALLOWED IT TO BE FREE
A SIMPLE LOVING GESTURE
AS ALL THE WORLD SHOULD BE.

Sometimes poetry remains a private solitary affair. Other times it loves to be shared. Thanks for posting, Colin.

isn't that the internal argument that all poets have, a poem pops in our head and we say "am i to busy to write it down....but what if its my next great one?" such a little piece of truth. i enjoyed it!
