A Poet Without A Poem


A POET WITHOUT A POEM


A Poet without a poem
Waits and waits
Thinks and thinks
Dreams and dreams
And still has nothing

A poet without a poem
Writes and writes
Corrects and corrects
And still has nothing

A poet without a poem
Listens to himself quietly
Hears nothing but awkward silence
Still has nothing

A poet without a poem
Has nothing
And writes down the nothing
And imagines he has something.

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
