Poetry Is My Sugar

written by: Dr. Gideon Sampson Cecil

 

Poetry the sugar in my
tea I drink daily
as I go
to sleep at nights
to dream of my
muses hidden
in the invisible
roof of my soul.
My muses come
like a sudden
shower of rain
writing in the blank
pages of my immortal memory.

I drink a Shakespearean
Sonnet;
A Dante’s Tercet,
A Homeric Ode,
A Virgil’s Epic
And a Milton’s Blank verse;
As ‘Poetry Sugar’ into my tea
that sets my soul free
invoking my muses to
write in my fragile mind
so free.
