A Poet's Pen

A Poet’s Pen

I carry my pen and paper with me
I take them everywhere I go
In a moment… most unexpected
Words of poetry may begin to flow

Some times the words just leap to life
A story they’re yearning to tell
The ink flows freely across the pages
As if the pen itself, could spell

They speak of the majestic mountains
Open plains and stormy seas
They bear tidings of joy and sadness
Words of comfort… a heart to please

They speak of the poor, and royal kings
Of treasures money can’t buy
Paint great pictures, of far away places
Soar to heights… only eagles dare fly

They can capture a Baby’s first smile
Relay stories, of love at first sight
Create moments of peace for the weary
Engulf you, in laughter’s delight

Poetic words stir things inside the heart
No words can even explain
Words full of love and compassion
Invade the soul… evaporating the pain

Days passed… dreams of tomorrow
Burst into life, with pen in hand
Things we question the reasons why
Appear in verse…. we understand

Relating epic tales of carefree living
Broken lines… of woe and agony
But for whatever their purpose
They must be written… expediently

Whenever I feel the urgency to write
Deliver some hope now and then
May I never be found slacking in my duty
Of recording life… with a Poet’s pen

I particularly like writers writing about their craft, and with their pens. This was very enjoyable and I completely understand it! Thank you : )
