Balladeer, Sir, I just wanted to say
I've been the proper student
and taken your sage advice
to be a bit more prudent!

A thunderstorm came up this morn
in the wee dark hours 'fore dawn
So I went to bed for five hours
but woke to find it still raging on!

I've taken to heart your instruction
and not strayed out the door
'cause I'm afraid that lightning
might slap me to the floor!

Those stabbing bolts have knocked out power
Yet here, to you I write...
Might you have more advice to a poet
Who pens by candlelight?


caroline

Yeah, yeah...I know...I won't give up my day job...*LOL*!

Strange-I have that same habit myself, Caroline! Should we both try to kick it? LOL

I think you're doing very well
Taking pen in hand
By writing under candle light
You bravely make your stand.

Many greats from years gone by
Wrote that very way.
Poe, Defoe, and Longfellow
Well, what more need one say?

Perhaps, by following their style
Of using candle's glow
The atmosphere that aided them
May help your poems to flow.

So when the lightning knocks out power
Just give a little smile
And say, "Hey, Greats of long ago,
I'll see you in a while!"

Caroline and Balladeer: YOU GUYS ARE GREAT!
YOU PUT A SMILE RIGHT ON MY FACE!
