Forgotten Postage Stamp - Poem by Reginald Scott

Forgotten postage stamp
I sent my box away
I released myself from ingratitude about yesterday
Thats's when i left my box; so lonely and unwanted
I held the key of eternity as i pondered on the time
As i remembered the tedious and complicated postage stamp line;
My forgotten postage stamp i will miss you everyday
Which then i will release you on your joyous send back day

    What makes this piece special, I think, is that at one point you address the postage stamp directly, as is sometimes done in an ode. I think the technical term is a 'conceit, ' but I'd have to get my reference book to make sure. That comes as a nice surprise, and there's something whimsical and charming about missing one's stamp. I like the sound and rhythm of the last line, but I'm not sure I quite understand your meaning. I like the poem a lot. (Report) Reply
