Just a Pound, PLEASE!
by Radko Vacek
Age Group: Adult
My poems are like Christmas lights,
Hanging together, but half don't work
And the rest aren't too bright.
With pen in hand, I see myself a star
Poetic, but I miss the mark, by far!
A would be poet, I sit here writing,
So rarely inspiration alighting
Upon my shoulder, even though I wait!
With much of life passed, so little I state
Thus far bright enough to be worth a read!
O, food for thought! If only I could feed
My brain, just bit by bit but steadily,
Like upon the clovers the sucking bee!
If the Devil's finger lures, I won't look,
But O, a real poem please! Let the book,
With all its prize-winning glory be yours.
Sixpence of inspiration, no, not more
I ask! I huff, I puff, and just few lines
I write, while the morning glory vine twines
Up the whole trellis, equal time! The sun
Rises, sets, rises, sets, while I write one,
Just one poem, as a candle is bright!
I just can't write. Yet I have done some right.
Could the gods smile, and kindly fill my brain?
Just a pound of wits, PLEASE, for all my pains!
