I Do Not Know What To Do With Myself Today


I am free
I have all the time I want to write
But I do not know what to write
Or if I can really write anything-

It is a beautiful day outside
But when the heat of the afternoon comes
No one will want to be there-

I have the whole morning to dream
But I have no dreams
I am empty as music never played
And never listened to-

I try to think how to wake myself
I listen and watch beautiful songs and poems
But little inspires-

It will be a long day
And I doubt I will write anything in it-

Perhaps after a nap
I will feel otherwise
But now the only dream I have is
Sleep.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Burns

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,
Sharp shivers thro' the leafless bow'r;
When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
