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 Pablo Neruda

I want you to know
one thing.

You know how this is:
if I look
at the crystal moon, at the red branch
of the slow autumn at my window,
