pantor of the Oaks


That's where Inspiration Lies


Its not the bridge or the person walking over it
Its the state of being for the one who is walking on it
Its not the ice cream or the flavor that brings you back
Its the tasting and allure in the moment forthcoming
Its not the stadium or the baseball team that brings the fans
Its the excitement of the fans that creates the stadium
Its not the body of a beautiful woman that we want to possess
Its the accomplishment and curiosity that motivates the jest
Its not the river that allows the water to flow
Its the water that allows the river a chance to be
Its not the sky we thank for its beautiful light
Its the light that shines when we cherish the sky
Its not who we think a person is that we love
Its the person who just is whether we love them or not
Its not the drum or guitar that sings the song
Its the song that sings through the instrument
Its not the food or drink that tastes so good
Its the loving thoughts that make the meal
Its not the beer that creates an alcoholic
Its the alcoholic that drinks the beer
Its not the poet who writes the poem
Its the poem waiting for the poet to write at all

Poem of the Day

poet Katharine Lee Bates

O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!
America! America!
