Michael Bogle

Rookie (08/15/1963 / Russellville, Kentucky)


I wonder if at all,
Any of the time,
What life would be like,
Without words to rhyme.

What would the poet do,
If all we could do was speak,
In misaligned utterance,
To reach up to the peak.

What I say is this much I know,
Without words to rhyme,
To ebb and to flow,
A poets mouth would be silenced,
Most of the time.

I wonder if at all,
Any of the time,
What life would be like,
Without words to rhyme.

poet Henry David Thoreau

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
