Lessons From The Poem
Ye Lit. without a blade that slash like a sword
and mend like glue.
Ye that can sharpen and turn blunt,
what soo strong power, to keep me at quil and sheet! ?
Ye that penetrates glasses without crack,
what daring might! ?
flooded with emotions of thousands,
but summerised in lines.
At days' rejection, ye teach,
to pen the parchs to clear sober hearts.
Growing and learning as a lesser
brush, is worth the best.
Ye guide thoughts to be wise in greys
and that, I sit and wonder;
what sober heart delights not in the poem! ?
