A Poem Mood


A POEM MOOD

The thin clear ordinary mind
Is not for Poetry-

One needs a Deep Doubleness within-
A certain kind of Ironic Longing-
A calling out for Meaning
That knows it cannot ever Define itself completely-

A Poem Mood
Is a different kind of Being.

One can sometimes make it come-
One can sometimes respond to it,
And make the Poem with it.
But is not so simple
And not so easy.

I have the Mind and Mood of a Poem now-
But how many would – be poetic lines have I written
Including these perhaps
Without it?

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
