Jonathan Goldman a.k.a JGthepoet (16 December 1943 / Nottingham)
'Am I Unique? '
Am I Unique or Special or What?
That all my Poems that I down do jot,
Are never amended, revoked or changed.
Or the lines moved or words re-arranged.
Perhaps it's because the words aren't mine,
But are from a source more Divine,
From HE who rules and made this World,
And WHO with me in verse does daily converse.
Fellow Poets often tell me regular-ly,
Of how their Poems will soon finished be,
How they'll change the words, the rhymes and more,
But hope their subjects will not their Readers bore.
Long Epics take some time to write,
As rhymes and scans are not at first right,
To get their meaning across to me,
Takes concentration, effort and time from thee.
My evening passes, it'll soon be night,
As the final verse of this poem is in sight,
But when later I lay me down to sleep,
More words will appear for poems to complete.
