Becca's Muse

I looked high and low to find Becca's muse
I searched in the barn looked under a goose

For that strange fellow with long flowing hair
He wears interesting clothes and has great flare

In his pocket inspiration is kept
He sprinkled magic whenever she slept

We are sad she hasn't written in days
No more poetry to read and to praise

I keep up my searching, him I must find
Without her verse I'll go out of my mind

My search ends after I look every place
He hoots and hollers he so loved the chase

"Go back to my friend she misses you bad,
if you rush back she will truly be glad."

He smiled a broad smile and bid me farewell
"It won't be long, she'll have stories to tell."

Sometimes a muse must gather inspiration
Running from me his little vacation 

So now he's back with her where he belongs
Soon we'll read poetry and lovely songs


Dedicated to my friend Becca.

    A wonderful tribute to a fantastic and inspiring poet. I loved the image of the muse hiding and playing!

    Oh yes, very a-muse-ing write Rick. I see Becca appreciated your help in sending him back in the right direction. That's the only trouble with muses, they tend to wander lol. Take care, Richard

    It's finished!! Lovely dedication to Becca. Her writing is truly wonderful. She is a top poetess here on the site. Good thing you found her muse or her fans would go wild.
