Poem Per Day
poetic scribble by Bob Axell 2009


If I could write a poem
A poem every day
I'd do my best to notice
When inspiration sways

It would be best to know when
My ideas run away
Like the hulk of Oakland
Like the snow in May

When the hulk is unfound
Or when the snow is gone
I am to old ideas bound
If I don't move along

And find my mind in due time
Then dig into its hull
Maybe I'll find a few words
Still hidden in my skull

Maybe I will find nothing
In regard to a day so dull
And scribble a little something
Inspirationist Lill and Lull

Remember when I sat there
Remember when they spun
The ideas in my eardrum
And now, they have begun.
