...........................Was This Poem Written Yet?


The poem was visualized on the front, screen porch,
in silence, in wonder, through eyes...
It swarmed the Autumn-purpled flowers by the door,
leafed through reds, golds of the Chinaberry Tree...
dripping words down Sunday wet tin,
onto the wooden steps.

The poem never stalked like Lady McBeth, through
darkness to her ending hall, last line spoken...
Never flew too close to the Sun, as Pegasus,
gathering no Phoenix rebirth...
The poem did not herald a magical Sunday.

For the poem stayed on the front porch,
and was never written.

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
