A Poet’s Song

A Poet’s song stirs in the soul
Like waves that crest and softly roll
The gust of breath that gently gyres
From the depth of heart’s desires
The surf erodes the rocky shoal

Kisses given and kisses stole
The glass half empty or half full
Only muse can say what inspires
A Poet’s song

From condition we cannot control
What’s incomplete is also whole
When all the universe conspires
Truth among hypocrites and liars
Penned with care upon ream and scroll
A Poet’s song

T J Therien
