From A Poet's Pen
A ditty, or a dirge today?
From a poet’s pen flow words so wiggly-wise
That every line will bring
Tears, laughter to our eyes.
There could most surely be
Fresh thoughts to anthems sing,
Fresh rhymes, and rhythms free.
No telling what is next,
Those pondered thoughts, that thing
To make brain’s memory vexed.
The poet’s pen can craft
The songs balladiers will sing,
Their songs to drive us daft.
The ancient thoughts from then
Well writ still in our hearts do ring,
Which came from a poet’s pen
Which is more important (both of course) outlook or inlook?
