The Want Of Write

The Want of Write

If only I had sparsely enough time
To study mere words
and then to write-
To understand some articulation,
to let a thought flow forth right-
I believe it quite probable 
that I should soar in ever-flight.
Instead, here am I,
trapped in the dead of night.

  1. I really LOVE the purple pen and inkwell. And the verse is perfection. Whatever I say will likely sound too gushy, but this is very nice.
