The Option In The Middle Of A Very Sound Sleep

the poem is a dream
it arrives in the middle of my sound sleep
it wants to wake me up
it is severely disturbed
it wants to be written

i am so tired
and i ask it
why it does have to be written?

i do not have the answer
to fabricate its purpose
i know it has
so many reasons

but i respect it somehow
and i leave it

at the last hour of my

it leaves me perturbed somehow
but when i wake up and gets myself busy with the ordinary days of my life
it becomes
another item forgotten

perhaps its reason is that
it is in the middle of a very sound sleep
and so it has all the
option to tell the truth

Poem of the Day

poet William Wordsworth


I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
