My Advice - Poem by Darwin Henry Beuning

For sixty-two years
It lay dormant

Now, with my working years past
It has risen at last

What best sums it up
Is my quotation

'In each of us there is a poem and a song
For most
A poem that will never be written
And a song that will never be sung'

Find that which lies within
And put it to paper while you can

    What wonderful advice, Hank! Of all your quotes on your poet page, that's the one I like the best.
    You should write it down while you can before it gets lost forever. One Sunday morning not too long ago I woke up with the first six lines of a poem running through my head. I thought 'This is great! I only need two more lines to finish, and this will be one of my best poems ever! ' I went to church, and after church decided to write down the six lines I already had, so I could finish it later, and discovered that they were already gone. I could not even remember what the poem had been about. So I wrote a poem about it called 'The one that got away'.
