! Poem For Danny And A Cliché For Jc - Poem by Michael Shepherd

The poet sat by the babbling brook
whence all but he had fled;
the poet babbled on; the brook,
dried up and long since dead.

    By the babbless brook
    The poet, Shepherd, sat...
    Babbling on and on
    About this and that.

    Water water, neverywhere
    and more than a dropp to drink.
    a dried-up burn, (or even brook)
    can still make a poet think.
