The Shining Lamp


An angel that goes around
With his shining lamp,
A poet earth bound
Leaves his stamp
On fresh drops of dew
Old thoughts ringing anew,
He showers the budding minds
Praising words he surely finds,
Always encouraging a born mate,
Seeds hopes for a blooming poet.

    A poet is someone who feels a little deeper into things.
    Sometimes even angels helps him write,
    I like this short writing.
    Curt, straight and insight
