The Impatient Poet's Gate


Oh Muse, you are mysterious...
to sing your haunting tune.
'Twould seem you are impervious,
at present, hide your croon.


You remind me of the wind,
both transient and fleet...
without your lilting presence,
my portrait's incomplete.


Like leaves upon the supple branch
that dance to breeze's touch
my words do flow most fluidly
in response to your gentle clutch.


But when you hide your whisper
and silence is your call...
the spirit of the writer
yearns your music above all!


Be not unkind, My Precious,
my pen is poised in wait...
and patiently I beckon
at the Impatient Poet's Gate.

So beautiful so serene. It is as if you are giving us glimpses of the spirit world with your pen. I will be the first to purchase your book of poems that charts the course of Man from the Physical back to Spirit through the "I". Your poems remind me of a river running back home to merge with the ocean. I had better stop here but you can see the effect your words have on me! Thank you.

...well you are my muse Miss M - I'm so impatient in the morning when thinking of you that I jump right out of bed forgetting to go to the bathroom and starting my coffee maker - or for that matter - feeding my beloved but starving cats - and head straight to the computer to see if you still love me - because I certainly love you and your writing .....

Great stuff, tnderhrt23, just as usual it might be said. I'd give a penny or more to be able to write such stuff, but my big problem is that I tend to spell "Muse" with a double-O. Maybe I'll do better when I grow up.

Gus :-)))
