A Poem for Thursday...Come let me see...



Come
let me see the poetry
in my life.
The rhythm and the rhyme.
The pauses
and the notes to hold.
The runs to run.
The metre
and the line.
Show me how often 
to sing a chorus.
Break into harmony
Add another voice
here
and there.

Let the middle of the song
be love.

But don't promise
what you can't give.
No Grimm stories
from the brothers.
Tell Christian
that I've heard them all.
I'd rather be with the clowns.
They sing my song.
The song of 
the holy fool.

  1. Like this very much Gerry - particularly that middle line all on its own - and probably the most important line of the whole poem.
