Poetess - Poem by Tony Grannell

When she would write with quill in candlelight,
she'd sip her Beaujolais as would her muse.
And she would too, a thought, in quiet recite;
a smile, she might, if deemed a phrase to use.

And she would choose a form to suit her mood,
some woven song of love, a ragged twill.
Whatever weave, her quest for art, pursued;
of quaint polite, a seamstress of the quill.

And she would seek some long forgotten word;
she'd search the hallowed annals of her mind.
As patient as the night and unperturbed
in whiling words away till she inclined.

She'd hasten not for verse may take its time;
she'd stay a pause whilst striking up a flame.
How she would douse the dark, the light divine
till glows what she has lit, will she remain.

When of a poem and time has disappeared;
her heart and soul in verse and thus become.
In such a charm her musings commandeered,
from whence deliverance and she'd succumb.

She'd lay her poem to rest where ink may dry;
she'd sip her mellow rouge in sweet delight.
She'd wait the morrow's night, her heart's reply,
when she would write with quill in candlelight.
