“Like a Poet hidden
In the light of thought,
Singing hymns unbidden… “
~Percy Shelley – To a Skylark
A Poets Hymn
The poets mind is always in tune
to what’s happening all around;
Picking up on tidbits of emotion,
trickles of thought, or misspoken sounds.
Tucking them away for rumination
adding perspective, bias, and slant.
Embellished with bits of truth’s promotion
life lessons to heal and seeds to plant.
Prophets, seekers, mystics, and sages
Words written across his pages
Always in perfect pitch…
a hymn for the ages
