Mortal among the Immortals

I am a mortal; but a speck in the analog of time;

seeking to join immortals of poetry and rhyme.

They used well chosen words; to elicit untold fame

stringing them together; to leave a lasting name.

~~~~~~~~~~

Browning, Poe; and Milton, none of their work lost

nor Tennyson, and Dickinson; Wordworth or Frost.

Such great writer’s one and all; read with much envy;

I cannot possess their genius; it simply isn’t in me.

~~~~~~~~~~

I long to write such works of art; and timeless pieces;

leaving words behind when read; inspiration increases.

Bryron and Thoreau I bow to your impressive verses;

Even though on this day; my heart within me curses.

~~~~~~~~~~

I will continue my prose and verse; although it is in vain;

I shall never be immortal; among the unknown I remain.

I’m standing in the shadow of the immortal poet‘s light;

My works not as read as theirs; but continuing to write.
