I Go To The Fields Of Poetry Today - Poem by Walterrean Salley

I go to the fields
Of poetry today,
To glean whatever
Is found by the way.

A morsel here,
And a morsel there—
Enough to make
A meal to share.

I go to the fields
Of poetry today—
Humming and skipping
Along the way.

And with my basket
In my hand,
I’m ready to glean
Whatever I can.

    Salley, may the harvest be an embarassment of choices and the produce deliver a the richness of ingredients to compose literary masterpieces from those poetic morsels. A seat at that feast is greedily sought. (Report) Reply

    lovely rhythm and style befitting this poem, Walterrean....absolutely delightful poem on the poet's calling...The other delightful poem yours connects to is William Blake's Piping down the Valleys Wild... (Report) Reply
