Weak-Minded As Coleridge

Poem By Shalom Freedman


Weak- minded as Coleridge
In Irresolution I write
A Great Plan for tomorrow
Quick lines for tonight.

The hare of the story
Has run out of steam
He writes new words
But is emptied of Dreams.

Comments about Weak-Minded As Coleridge

Maybe the Dreams need to be solified and wanted

Because they helped me feel more alive
They gave me an intensity

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
