Poems


Of poems there will be no end
As long as the poets do bend
Their ears to the muse
And do not confuse
Blank pages with those that are penned.

Contradictions


To think of myself’s not a chore;
I’m neither a prude nor a boor.
I haven’t a clue
What I think of you,
But of me I want to know more!
 
The “more” that I know might confuse
The sensible side of my muse.
She tends to profess
That I am a mess—
But what does she know of my ruse?

I wrote the first limerick in June for the prompt “When I Think About Myself.” I’ve now conjoined it with a new limerick for the prompt “A Bundle of Contradictions.”

The guys in the band

The guys in the band wear big shoes.
It helps them, they say, play the blues,
While folks in the street
Just jive to the beat—
They must have a rollicking muse!

Fox

Far beyond the gates
I seek my muse and find her,
singing to the fox.
