If I Do Not Get The Lines - Poem by Emmanuel George Cefai

If I do not get the lines
Then, what happens?
Let be: for if you are not in
The mood of singing, sing not,
Nor write word, nor verse.
Sooner of later Time will
Like a maturing Sun of the Spring fruits
Like an alarm watch
Dictate
A new time for new words and verse and song
Then
You will rise from drowsy sleep
And transcribe from the sleep into new verse.
