I need not know their lines.....A poem

I was born to write this way
and yet I'm never sorry
Do all the writers you know
know the
names of the greatest poets
No I think not
Tennyson
Brown
Elliot

Dickenson
Shakespeare
No ....the words have just come to life
as if they were born anew
My capacity to remember
these greats ?
subliminal perhaps
though not likely

The recognition ?
for me
unlikely and that's just
okay
yet I had to do this
reaching out to you and
you and you

Thank you for reaching back
I needed that
touch

Voted up and awesome. The great poets loom like shadows behind us as we put pen to paper.
