I Write And Cannot Write


I write and cannot write-
I dream and cannot dream-
I hope and cannot hope-
I am lost and more lost,
Sad and more sad
Why?

The light of this world
Will one day cease to shine
For all of us-
Nothing I do or you do
Will change this.

I write and cannot write-
I am sad too much-
Life goes on-
Soon I will go out the door
To morning prayer-
There is still light,
But the days are growing shorter.

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson

70

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
