THE BARD’S OFFICE

Updated on March 7, 2013
Click thumbnail to view full-size

What use to be his office~

Is all mine now. ~

What was his writing space~

Is now my creative place.

I inherited his dictionary~

A new battery for his spellchecker~

Needs to be obtained. ~

I cherish now his tools~

Which helped him to be famed.

Pictures he had gathered~

For his books~

Are piled behind me~

In their own little nook.

The Bard of Ratlum~

Cherished objects~

Still decorate the room~

Now bitter sweet memories~

Paint my mind with happy times to gloom.

Hard copy writings~

Are most likely his words~

We might not of yet heard~

Although to bring myself to now read them~

My grief does detour.

Stacked near my computer~

I have some of his readings he liked best~

The Lutheran Hymnal, A book on Robert Frost~

The private writings of a poet~

That in the old days had been lost.

Photographs hang on the wall~

Of the Bard and his cronies~

Some of them your average folk~

Others some famous blokes~

All of which he prized highly.

What use to be his office~

Is all mine now. ~

What was his writing space~

Is now my creative place.

I have since added my own special~

Paraphernalia~

From the verses of Robert Louis Stevenson~

To pink sticky notes~

As I tackle my own writing challenges~

In once the Bard of Ratlum’s home.

      The ghosts of writers past and present will evolve in your space you now call your own, let them whisper to you their sweet words, listen carefully my poet and your Muse will inspire your gifts and creations. Then you will write and share with your fellows and followers. Peace and blessings I send to you this day. Voted Up and shared.

      THis conjures up in so few words, the love of writing that so many of us persue, the grand history that we aspire to meet as well as the quaint writing nook that so many of us dream of creating.

      A perfect painting of words, that I simply loved

      'We might not of yet heard~' If I can criticize constructively, this needs to be corrected. Why secondimage does it need to be corrected?

      and also What use to be his office~ What used to be his office.

      Why should I change the way I want it said?

      secondimage If I may use some constructive criticism in reverse on you?

      Personally I do think you might have a good grasp of writing, but I do not think you have taken hold of the multi faceted comprehension of different forms of poetry.

      You certainly do not appreciate, like or are able to grasp my style of poetry writing. Maybe if you study other types of poetry as well as different styles of any type of writings you might some day be able to understand mine.

      I thank you for your attention, but for now I think it would be better if you broadened your repertoire of different styles of writings before you attempt constructive criticism on my poetry. Thank You for your consideration and compliance to this matter.

      Sincerely,

      Lisa
