In the event that anyone has realized that I am not posting very often anymore.. The following should explain why!!
So, if anyone should find my muse, please send her home, I need her desperately.
Thanks in advance,
The Wandering Muse
Oh, where has gone my whispering muse
who once guided my hand to write,
from the break of the sun in the morning
and on into my dreams late at night?
So loyal and true has been my muse
for lo, these many past years.
Gone now I pray, not forever
but, off to another I fear!
Oh, why has my muse gone deserted
and was it I who has caused her to leave,
from forgetting the source of the magic
and thus to myself, then deceived?
Becoming convinced, my own genius
was no more in need of her gift.
Till I awoke to the sun one past morning
and my pen seemed too heavy to lift.
So now I cry “come back” to my wandering muse
“for I am in need of your charm.”
“Please bring back to me all your talent
and save me from all further harm.”
