The Poems Came To Me At Times Easily


I sang and laughed with them
They were the joy of my inner life
I had no more happier times
Than when I was writing them-

Writing this one now
I think too of all the grief and sadness
That have gone into them
And will never be wholly written.

The writing of poems is a joy of life
Small or great as it is
It makes those of us
Who believe they are writing them
Breathe better.

Our life is twofold; Sleep hath its own world,
A boundary between the things misnamed
Death and existence: Sleep hath its own world,
And a wide realm of wild reality,
