~The Poet’s Poet~
A feeling of weakness and fear overcame him
Following the sight of his general demeanour
Lately he had not been in the best of health
The long mirror in the bedroom telling the whole story.
Now, a state of confusion overpowered him
The new woman in his life
Sinking under the extreme anxiety
Of friendless bodies.
He must again begin where all ladders start
Haul himself out of the gutter he finds himself in.
This episode in a long life lived is true
We were often invited to dine at his table.
