The Time For Rhyme Treasure Trove - Poem by Denis Martindale

I'm going to pause for a while -
Take time out from my day...
To write a poem, make you smile
And take your cares away...
I'll write of places where I've been,
Describe them one-by-one...
With some precision set each scene
And then I'll share some fun!

Perhaps I'll add an angel, too,
Important news to speak...
To prophesy to folks like you
Such that the Lord you seek.
Perhaps I'll tell an epic tale:
Courageous to the core!
With magic words that cannot fail
Such that you ask for more!

Perhaps I'll write romantic rhymes
Of when love pounced on me!
Relating rhapsodies of times
When courtship brought such glee!
Perhaps I'll curtsy round the truth!
Embellish now and then...
Or back it up with precious proof
That should convince all men...

Perhaps my work will reach Mankind
In some anthology!
If so, I'll try to stay refined
So folks can talk to me...
'My autograph? Yes, that's alright! '
I'd sign it with such flair!
It's nice when fans are so polite!
God bless them, everywhere!
