He's a bit off
That one
Writes poetry
Observes the passing throng
Passing judgment
On what's wrong
Pushing virtue
And venture
And all that out-dated stuff.
Isn't Wikipedia good enough?
He told a friend
Sleep gets interrupted
By a line
Or a cadence
Or an image.
Often talking to himself
At work
Distracted jerk.
Thinks a Heavenly input
Pens the lines.
Dances with beat
And rhymes
And Something beyond
Himself
Long assigned to the shelf.
By most of us.
Browning, an old one
Of like art
Wrote of the passing
Of a village bard.
Said he watched and mused
At others driven, confused
And passed some lines
To Duke and Court.
Hurt, hope or good report.
A man thought wise
To philosophize.
But we're beyond that.
No?

Thanks OEW. You know about the times of dryness and obscurity. We are privileged as poets if ever allowed to touch mercy and other things inscrutable. Have been looking this morning at Psalms 33 and 66 and 99. Hhhmm.

This is so true Doug, but we also know that from out of those times come precious gems such a this!
