The Greatest of Poets

#5

Does love come to you as a kindness?
Does pain seek you in vengeance? Your
poems are your own failings. Think how
much more can be said by your silence. Do
you hear the remonstrations of the moon?
Isn’t she still the greatest of poets?

  1. As a Mom and a writer – I”m not a huge fan of silence – of not speaking and sharing my thoughts. But silence at the appropriate times is of course, necessary. I think the moon inspires great poets… 🙂
