Words juggler


A new poem was born
Sometime, a complex struggle
Words, intractable, disobedient
harnessing them seems impossible!

Sometime, how easy it comes 
Words docile, bright and dreamy
One by one, arrives and perches  in mind
I and words, both in victory!

Anyway, I, the words juggler, compose them all 
First toss them up, then catch, then write
I creep under their skins, and make love
A poem blooms in my mind, in my heart.

 aurora, announces another grant of sun
A new poem, a new generosity of words
But no enough to compose, I learn, from sun
From words, to leave in it a portion of my soul!

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
