To Be a Muse

To be a muse is such a thrilling thing
To activate a mind and beauty bring
To turn to verdant plains a landscape bleak
Awaken dormant words and make them speak

Angelic thoughts a muse will whisper sweet
A writer’s mind with lofty thoughts she’ll greet
She’ll bring to life his hidden treasures deep
And touch his words so they make reader’s weep

A muse will muse about how to inspire
How to ignite the embers into fire
She’ll fan the flames of truth until they burn
The poet for her touch cannot but yearn

To be a muse is such a pure delight
To freely flit around and make thoughts bright

Love this piece. You are certainly the muse around here. Enjoyed Richard's piece which you inspired and was pleased for your inspiration in my own July Rain. This is just a delightful piece for all poets who hope their work will bless someone.

Hello Eileen, I entered my poem "Thought Police" in a contest. Please read the note on the bottom of my poem. After hearing you read your poem on Drakes show I am even more thrilled it was my inspiration for my poem. You indeed have played the part of a muse.

Richard....I really hope that piece wins, and if it doesn' needs to be published somewhere where ALL could see. In my home country...people would get whisked off to jail on suspicion of insurgence. Woman have had acid thrown on them for not having worn the veil. I know of someone who was beaten and imprisoned for changing his faith...This is real....It is a fantastic poem, Richard. If I had even the tinniest part in that. I'm overwhelmed with joy. Hugs
