I Need to Write a Poem


I need to write a poem
But what could I say?
Should I write about school or love?
Or how the sunset looks in May?

Or how about the shining knight
In a princess’ fairytale
A story about how he killed the beast
About how he could never fail?

Or maybe about my biggest dream
To sing upon a stage
In front of a cheering audience
Chanting out my name?

Or perhaps I should write about
My need to write a poem
I need it for Journalism soon
At least it’s not a column.

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
