She calls me softly with siren's song
On dreamy notes her voice echos
And even though I know it's wrong
Soon I'm in enraptured throws.
With trembling hand I take up quill
Her whisper soft upon my ear
And I cannot make my hand be still
I write to bring her ever near.
She guides my pen and warms my thought
With grace born out of inspiration,
And causes me to read what I've wrought
Out of ink and perspiration.
She takes my mind in gentle caress
Guiding me through fields of fancy
Never once feeling duress
In her embrace, my muse of fantasy.A poet's wings are strong and fair
And take them higher than most
Higher than some would even dare
With the muse as their hostess.
How can I deny my deepest call
My burning in the night,
When I can simply give my all
Every time I write?

Wonderful work, Robert. I can see you give your all everytime you write, your passion is undenyable. The ladies here have a way of seeing to it you never let up, either. Good poem.

To be thought of as inspiration
In words as beautiful as these
I humbly bow at your admiration
And only ever aim to please
So if my words have once moved you
My attempt at poetry be naught
You words in this one they ring so true
My reply, "Thanks a lot!"

A very nice posting, amazing how others inspire us

Michael: such praise...you sucking up to Femme's big brother?

suthern: All of you have in one way or another contributed to this piece, whether you know it or not. If not for Michael, Sy and Balladeer I would get few male readers but the women here seem to strive and let me know when I've done well. In fact it was a woman who brought me here in the first place...Thanks PFF.

No, I shall say Thank You for such a beautiful piece in honor of us women! How very thoughtful of you, sweet brother! And no, I don't believe Michael is sucking up - you are certainly a poet worthy of all praise you receive! I for one, am so glad to see your participation and growth here, as you are family as are others here....

I look in wonder, stand in awe
At the verses of the poets all
And just the beauty of your lines
Is one more miracle, one more chime

The inspiration that you praise
inspires poetry.
And when I seek another prod
I'll look for RSE

Darn! How did this one get by me? Excellent poem, Robert. I've had many of those same thoughts myself and you describe them very well.
