Wondrous Pen


In my imagination, freely I pen
She receives me, every now and then
Though a poet unnamed
With this pen, a poet is proclaimed

The only one who could speak my mind
For with you, there is nothing to hide
You have been my better tongue
That do not want me to die unsung

You are my strength, pen
You are my voice, pen
The fountain of my creativity
The pillar of my poetic ability

My pen, mightier than sword
Deepest interest explored
My pen, so victorious
Makes me so glorious

My pen, my greatest instrument
Without you, I 'd have been impotent
My pen, my voice
My pen, my strength

It kindles all the sunset land:
