Empty mind mine sounds only hush
Lonely bewildered in silence
I am to fill it with words lush
My musings are hunting for thoughts

Albeit heart yearns for poetry
Empty mind mine sounds only hush
I pat and pat my brain quite brisk
So that floods of words lot in gush

Time does not seem to wait then rush
Brain is working fast and fast-yet
Empty mind mine sounds only hush
Thought-hunt is busy running on

I don't like a random scribble
Perfect theme, proper words should push
That my poem is set right-still
Empty mind mine sounds only hush
