I Stole This Poem

I stole this poem, yes I did
It isn't mine to publish
But every word I write myself
On paper reads like rubbish.

This gem says all I want and more
It shines my beacon bright
It's everything I would have said
If I knew how to write.

Women, gold and accolades
May rain down from the sky
I deserve to taste these things
Just once before I die.

I stole this poem, yes I did
To my eternal shame
I pierce my conscience with my pen
And sign my bloody name.

Farther Chair

Yonder on the farther chair
upon the porch nearby the stair
a winged beauty feathers fair
was looking at me sitting there

So startled by this morning treat
He sang a song to bless and greet
The sunshine and the break of day
I slowed so he’d not fly away
