A Day Without Poetry


Passes without a line in mind-
A day without Poetry
Is a day almost all of us have
At one time or another-

It is O.K.
It is alright to be without Poetry for a day-

Maybe for some
It is alright always to be without Poetry-

But for others
A day without Poetry
Is a wasted day-

But then again
There are so many days,
Maybe even those who live in and love Poetry
Can manage without it
For a day.

    A day without poetry is lost thought with nowhere to settle down.
    I cannot bear it, poems must be written both day and night, with
    no exception. Love your poem, but I for one have to have every
    day with poetry or I am lost forever in torment. Thank you for
    sharing. RoseAnn (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
