A Man Became Addicted To Writing Poems


A man became addicted to writing poems
Even when he lost the sense
That they were true poetry.
He then permitted himself
To write poems
He did not himself quite believe in.
Can we say this is a poor poet
And a harmless fool
And someone who need not be taken seriously?

    I don't think so! When I am fully awake walking down the streets of New York everyday or I am at work, I think of Poetry and at the end of the day when I head home tired and fall asleep profoundly, I dream Poetry and I always have a pen and a blank paper in case I wake up in the middle of the night and put in writing what I was dreaming! I would do corrections later and then post it! Keep inspiring the world my friend! 10+++ Love and Peace for always! Now I am going to sleep and dream of poetry again! ... (Report) Reply

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Out of the bosom of the Air
Out of the cloud-folds of her garments shaken,
Over the woodlands brown and bare,

Silent, and soft, and slow
