I Wish


I wish I had your wit
I wish I had your humor
I wish I had your memory
And your ablility to let the words
Flow from a mind that holds so much
Maybe that's why I cling to putting
All these thoughts inside me
Down on paper
Because without it
I'd be forever silent and thinking

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
