As The Heat Gets worse

I’m siting here alone today
There is not much a man can do
It’s forty-six here in the shade
Most will be glad when heat does fade
But me, I will pick up a pen
For writing is always my yen
It will give me lots of fun
I’ll write until the day is done

My verse it comes so easily
As words they keep on flowing free
I can write my words like mad
And me it makes me feel so glad
That this sweet gift did come to me
A poet I did learn to be
I guess it’s where I found all this
Those words they always gave me bliss

So now I’ll sit here in this heat
And see what comes out of my heart
I’ll sit for ages on this seat
And try to write a work of art
But if things never come to this
I’ll just except it that is all
And keep on writing all these words
For writing feels so wonderful

You have expressed how I feel about writing in this stanza: "I can write my words like mad And me it makes me feel so glad" EXACTLY! I have a feeling there is no way you could stop now, and I am glad of it.

G'day Again Caren. When others were playing sport I was always writing, and it has stayed with me since a child. I have also written a lot of songs too. My music has never been the best But I still cherish those songs I have written and recorded. Once again I Appreciated your kind comments, my friend. Keep writing, it's the greatest thing to do. When we find our passion in life then each day becomes wonderful...Peter
