   What a Poet Must Believe
[Nemo vir est qui mundum non
          reddat meliorem ]

Beneath shredded clouds
  and angry sky,
amid these tall, broken,
and huddling forms of
  bare-bone trees,
here in this lonely place
this dead time, from
the frigidly indifferent
  heart
of relentless Winter,
and an ever-darkling land
of runaway dreams,
this poet must believe
that words are the
only inexhaustible
source of true ‘magic’    
with the power to
change the world.

       --- b. e. adams (for 1/1/2014 and beyond ...
                                'wisdom' of a fool ?!)

Yes, you are absolutely correct, but sometimes we have no one to talk to.

It seems that poets are the only ones who do believe, Bruce.

I used to believe, but I think what I believe now, disqualifies me as a poet...sigh
