That Elusive Perfect Poem - Poem by David Whalen

Some day I’ll write one…
That won’t garner great numbers
Yet will linger in hearts…and
Rest sweetly on one’s lips

A poem that readers
will want to come back to
A poem that readers will savor
Tasting, …In long, sensuous sips

A poem that warms one’s cockles
Makes one lean back and smile
Makes one glad to have read it
To enjoy my writing…for a while

Maybe place it in their favorites
Hopefully, at least… keep in their hearts
Repeat to themselves favorite phrases
All my descriptive and alliterative parts

Better to have written
Just that one special poem
That could arouse great emotion
Than to write many… that arouse it in none

I have not yet accomplished it
And by me, this feat may ne’er be done
The perfect poem yet eludes me…
Yet I hope… some day I’ll write one
