When another pens words I couldn’t catch and shared emotions I’ve longed to express, I honor their works with no duress.

Words in verse


Do not intrude,

Only to leave at will

Let me be, in my loneliness

Amidst dreams I cherish


I asked not of you a farthing

Yet you covered me in riches

Was it to lend to others, (at more interest?)

You took them back little by little, at will?


I have no use for temporary loans

Take back your barrelful

What you bestowed

I return to you manifold


You may now be richer by so much more

But, I was rich before you,

I will remain richer after you

A state of richness beyond your ken.


.And yet I doubt….


With all your amassed riches

Do you really feel rich?

    Thanks 🙂 You have a very interesting profile. I will hop in to read your stories and poems. I am on an enforced sabbatical (and have only answered you!) due to a tennis elbow (right hand) that prevents me from using the keyboard. 😦
