The Water Muse

Against the sea or ocean tide,
with poetry and pen allied,
I found the water muse inspires
every word the hand requires.

How winsome is her rustic art
that from recesses of the heart,
bring well-established syllables
and the flow of countless ripples?

By gaping river's open mouth,
she'll end the wordlessness of drought
and as the poets' voice is heard,
she'll sail on his dramatic word

then drift into those wordless streams
on metered verse and rhyming schemes
until each one who ever wrote
has cast their work of art afloat!
