All I Wanted - Poem by J.. Celine

All I wanted, a simple task,
To reference a classic of the past.
Hunt a poem, one-time thing
because I keep remembering
my love of words and dead-on thoughts.

But dead-on comes more quickly it seems
with fewer hours spent in dreams
and longer days with shorter runs
and longer days with computing fun
and longer days with work undone.

Ten thousand visitors, mere 50 come
to spend some time to write their own.

    Aha! You caught me! I began a couple of years ago by searching for my favorite poet as a child, Shel Silverstein. Now look! Hee hee!

    Welcome to poemhunter! I look forward to reading you!
