Why Won'T You Read My Poetry?

I printed all my poems out and put them in a book.
I've placed it on the table in the hopes you'll take a look.

You know you'll find my soul there beneath the cover page.
You'll read about my pleasures, my heartaches and my rage.

I know you don't like poetry and this I understand
but how can you not want to peek into my ''wonderland''?

If you would take a minute and peruse a page or two

I think you'd be suprised to read the thoughts I have of you.

I don't think that would work with my other half, I have to tie him down to get him to concentrate on what I have written. I enjoyed this one. Sincerely Ernestine.

This one is funny - you know it is so true. And so is your solution.

This is excellent, Mary. And what is it with spouses? I have to trick mine into sitting in that special chair, lean back and listen to one of mine. ......'is it a long one? , I sure hope not...' H

Wonderful poem, Mary. I like how the serious tone becomes unexpectantly humerous at the end... Well done! ! Brian

It's funny that I'm going through the same thing. I placed my book on the table and now it's missing.
