April Washed. - Poem by Fay Slimm

March gone, I return April washed, ready
For writing once more, my exciting dreams
Needing a pen nudge me, with steady
Muse again daily, poetic scheming
Of verse is now a prime motive, romantic
New thoughts jostle for space as they line up
For lines. Gyrating inside pedanticly,
Metres emerge as desire becomes sated
And verses are birthed. So friends I appear
Among you again refreshed and rested,
Heart full of thanks for your care, I feel clear
And eager to write, - at least, trying my best.

    Your lovely poem touches close to home. I have been more or less pried away from writing poetry by work (a good thing) and bad politics associated with work (a decidedly bad thing.) I look forward to reading your new creations. (Report) Reply

    Great to have you back. I am on the merry-go-round again of my favorite pastime. I have a couple of new poems. A Poet's Poetical Love is written for a poet here who calls me Grannie. It appears his Grannie died, so I would love to hear your comments.

    Thanks Fay

    Well, I am glad to hear you are rested and refreshed, Fay, as I came to your page this morning needing a little lift of my spirits and found it almost immediately with this charming poem! It's always a delight to read your sparkling poetry and this fine poem is no exception. It is, as all of your fine poems are, very expressive and well written. And now that your are back and churning out your marvellous writes, we all know that spring has at last come! Carl. (Report) Reply

    This is rather clever Fay - such a light touch, too. I can see your thoughts pegged on the line and smell the fresh scent of spring flowers on them as you fold them, ready for the iron. Delighted that the muse has returned and look forward to seeing you in print on a regular basis. love, Allie ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ (Report) Reply
