All things can tempt me, but I’ll not stray long
from poetry. Desire to write is strong.
The lure of pie may shoo my muse away,
but soon new themes my poems will convey.
A brand-new movie’s on, a mystery.
When it concludes, I’ll write distraction-free.
I’m writing, but my Clark* book waits close-by.
Good choices for my sweet time often vie.
Great plots and pie provide no exercise!
To walk before I write more lines seems wise.
*Mary Higgins Clark (December 1927-January 2020) author of GREAT
