I have to write a poem,
Iíve been away too long.
My muse must have forgotten how to play.
And so I sit here thinking,
About what I should write
Until this nighttime turns into the day.

Shall I make it silly
Or shall I make it nice,
A horror story straight from deepest hell?
Or should I tell of angels
Just waiting with their harps,
Whilst the reaper is at large, ringing deathís bell?

Oh please, my muse, come join me
Iím feeling so alone.
What can a wordless poet do for fun.
Iíd better get a cushion
To soften up this chair
For sitting writing nothing hurts my bum.

But now the sun is rising
To wash away the night
And dawn prepares to blossom into day.
I know itís time to ponder
If my sanityís quite right,
As I snap my pen and throw the pad away.,

Ivor G Davies

The moment created this second, is a moment that's going to last.
It lives the full spectrum of time, the future, the present and past.

Ivor's muse.
Hi Ivor...I know whereof you speak (and then some!) My muse must have a lover, because she only comes by sporadically. I'm glad to see you're not going to just wait for her/him to appear...taking pen in hand is the only way.

If you keep writing them...I'll keep reading them!
Glad to see you back.

The muse
It's even more irritating when that dratted muse comes by long enough for a stanza and leaves when things get interesting. If I had a quilled pen I think I would stab mine!!! Keep at it - you seem to do well without your muse!!

Bea, Wendy, Darrin,

Thanks for looking in, actually my pet hate is when I am completely unable to write my thoughtd down and lose them.....

No it's not actually, it's when I write directly into the submit area, forget to copy and lose the lot when I press enter! Occasionally I'll rewrite what I can remember but usually I just lose it all, as I seldom know what I've written until I read it!
