A Stolen Poem
I was surprised to find this poem on Bing.
It had a very familiar ring
I wrote it 15 years ago!!!
No credit is given to the schmoe
who "borrowed" it without consent.
That's what I most resent.
That and that awful color scheme
More of a nightmare than a dream
Purple font on blackened sky ~
It's not at all pleasing to the eye.
I claim my poem as one of prose
and get over the theft, I suppose.
at Jan's request I'm posting the original poem
We searched for each other
in the most unlikely places
among the most unlikely people
and when our paths finally crossed
it was for reasons so entangled
that we might not even have noticed
except for that faint quiver of wonder
like a passing chill from the night air
and the closest we've come to explaining why
is because it was you
and because it was I
*NOTE: There are two lines inserted in the center that are NOT mine
"in our daily bread - and the usual trespasses"
So they steal a poem and then add words of a religious nature. How very unChristian of them.
