Of Muse

Poet, Poetess is, and only is

muse’s servant, interpreter;

Horn my ear to listen,

feel the soul of poet, poetess

come pouring out in heartfelt words;

another world, woven around mine,

the entrance the poem, words

that no longer words are

but doorway to muse.

I almost always get yours....
But GUG, you never did comment on my poetry...is there a hint somewhere there?

not sure that I didn't not comment. on your poetry. Certainly did.


Princess said...

Oh, really?
Where's the proof?

I don't mean the posts with the poetic interludes btw...I mean the actual poems-

GUG, that anonymous comment smirks of ehsuneutics(that the spelling?), don't you agree?

Princess said...

Damn! Eshuneutics (I think!)
Hate mis-spellings!

Hi Princess,

sure, sounds like the man himself. 'bout the comments, afraid it is the same thing. I mean, I would tell you that I like the poem, but dunno why I dont like one, or why I like it for that matter.

Hi anon,
Lady thought you are like a friend of ours.
Anyway, a valid point you raise. But fame and fortune I am not seeking. I write for my pleasure. No, I am no poet. Dont need that recognition.

Besides intimating I need to revise, you did not actually comment on the poem itself...
