Pen and Penny


O' dear friend Poet!
you have always a pen in hand
but your pocket is penniless

No matter!
your heart is so rich
that can yearn so many penny
keep writing
keep your imagination
going on
day will come
you will get jewel
in imagination
that cost can not be paid
by this world

You must know
poetry is the mother
of all branches

Poetry yields money
money can never yield poetry

Keep it up
My friend!

Tell me not (Sweet) I am unkind,
That from the nunnery
Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.
