Empty Poem


A song of lucid hope
I would love to write
A pure way to cope
A tune o so bright

A dance of the sweetest lightness
I would love to write
A pure way of brightness
for no one to hide

Blank lines of a staff
An empty silent song
No notes on my behalf
No tune to make strong

A poem so clearly true
I would love to write
To take away any woe
to enlighten all fright

All I have is an empty marker
And nothing but emptiness to write
The grating words of a barker
with vocal cords too tight

Poem of the Day

poet Edgar Allan Poe

Kind solace in a dying hour!
Such, father, is not (now) my theme-
I will not madly deem that power
Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
