The Poem

The poem that I write today
Has always been a thought away.
But do I think of trees, or birds,
As I slyly meter out my words?
Or do I think of spring, or fall,
Of summertime, the sea and all?
Perhaps it is a moon-rinsed night
That prods me so to sit and write--
Or it could be a drop of rain,
If not some nagging doubt, or pain.
What drives my pen to wander so,
To touch the sky; the earth below?
Of all the thoughts, both old and new--
I ponder most the thought of you.
And so the poet takes his pen...
Writes words of love, and falls again!

    What I absolutely love about your work is the seamless way you write....There are no pauses, no...flaws...anywhere. I have as yet to find something that didn't flow absolutely perfectly, Mel. I'm not being superfluous in my praise, just honest. Love this piece.
