Accidental Poet

A Poetic Inducement

My thoughts seem

To follow a certain trend

I have to wonder if inherited

Or of my Muse’s whim


For so often

I think in poetic rhymes

Frequently a message there

Layered between the lines


Eternally thankful

Of this I am to thee

Who bestowed this poetic gift  

This glorious gift to me


For the gift of poetry

My personal amusement

Hidden there within

A poetic inducement

              • Joe Dawson

                Very nice AP. Poetry, I find, is an inescapable song in the head, hummed by the brain even when I'm in bed. Joe
