I Cannot Write Daily


I cannot write a poem every day,
You do not know the energy required;
To sit composing, thinking what to say
And how to say it, leaves me feeling tired;
But I do like it and it's not a chore,
To play with words absorbs my interest.
I ask myself, what did I do before?
The answer: work, with very little rest.
But I no longer work, I am retired
And I have lots of time, yes lots of time
To make my verses seem to be inspired;
To find the perfect rhythm, perfect rhyme,
So lines I write communicate with you,
In ways poetic, meaningful and true.

Poem of the Day

poet Algernon Charles Swinburne

Kneel down, fair Love, and fill thyself with tears,
Girdle thyself with sighing for a girth
Upon the sides of mirth,
Cover thy lips and eyelids, let thine ears
