When a poet writes a poem


When a poet writes the words that dance
A poem of love and sweet romance
A lovers vow a second chance
When a poet writes a poem

He dont always know where it is goin'
His movin' hand doth write and write
Often deep into the night
He writes of Peace ~ He writes of War
Of the SAD & LOVELY things he saw
He writes of Life ~ he writes of Death
He writes of this he writes of that
His Puppy Dog & Pussy Cat
Sometimes to you he will not show it
Encourage WILLY by writing another STANZA !

When a poet writes the words that amaze
Your eyes look at me in a daze
My love ignites like a blaze
When a poet writes a poem

When a poet writes a poem ~ the muse must move
To inspire th poet and get him in the groove
Great ode or a disaster it may prove
When a poet write a poem !
Hi WILLY I followed your instructions like CHRISTINA ~ Hope I got it "write" BRIAN !

When a poet writes a poem
From then his world is not his own
Words transport him to another place
When a poet writes a poem

When a poet writes the words that make his pen bleed.
No fiction or made up stories he just paints what sees .
When a poet writes a poem.

when a poet writes the words the fit
a funny poem with sarcastic wit
he really has some fun with it
when a poet writes a poem

When a poet writes a poem
They come from a place
In his grey matter space
When a poet writes a poem

        Sorry, Got here late. Idea!

        When a poet sometimes is late
        And the horses have left the gate.
        Try again another date
        When a poet writes a poem.

        • willyweed

          Yes perhaps I should have gave more room. But it's better late than never
