A Harvest Scene

Poem By Gilbert White

Love may be a delusion
But it’s the only real thing

We exaggerate the virtues of those we love
To us they are the universe
But to the Universe they are dust

We hype their Goodness
And their Beauty
And all that we love in them
But what are they to the stars?

Love all Love
Makes us what we are
No matter the dust and humble the stars.

I wanted poems
Because they helped me feel more alive
They gave me an intensity

Many have won prizes

Nothing Tells Me How To Begin Again

Nothing tells me how to begin again
Or even how to try

And how can I expect to do at the age of seventy- five?

I Must Continue To Write

There will always be another poem
And with that poem- hope
However absurd-
So even if I despair
