Best Poem of Amos Greig

Quicken Muse

Quicken muse, your words
Can spark an amber fire:
Defender of the past
Vanguard of futures
Enemy of the present.

Quicken, muse your words
Portray these foetid qualities in
Tumble down civilization
Harbinger of change, whisperer
Of possibilities?

Quicken muse, your words
An island, a door.
The Poet Oracle,
Prophet, doomsayer.

Quicken, muse your words,
Open new worlds,
Share these burdens
Deliver hope, wisdom?
