The Verse That Got Away

Updated on January 23, 2011

The One That Got Away

 A snatch of a verse

          or something,

                         Oh, dear,

           perhaps it was....roses?

                                       or maybe, the soul?


I know it had an impact, profound

           on something, whatever...

                                       that life is about;


Too lazy to rise,

           and get it all down--

                                         now it's lost forever.


And I'll always rue

                   the verse 

                              that got away

                                                      in the night.

The text below is informational in nature only, and 
will reappear in many of my pieces, and can be ignored.
This is extra 'content' added at the end to fill space 
for no better reason than that "Hub Pages" wants to 
take it upon itself to dictate to a writer how long 
their compositions should be.  I have numerous poems
 that are very short, and this piece of fluff-fill 
will appear at the end of each and every one of them.

    You catch that almost idea nicely - I particularly like your fluffy filling :D

    I put in a picture that goes in some way with the poem partly for the same reason.
