A Few Poets
by Joe Cramer
I have kissed a few poets in my time,
Listened to several more than many,
And read the works of more than I could
Ever imagine in my wildest dreams to tell you.
I've licked my lips in sweet anticipation
Of more poetic word, thought, deed.
Now if I would only heed the avarice
And do something with my own words.
My succulent, sweet kisses are far too few,
Though I would but kiss, into
The long, lonely night until
I thought that I was satiated.
I have known a few poets in my life
Never, not ever taking one for a wife.
Perhaps that is the reason for my malaise
These days, or indeed, perhaps not.
I constantly read the works of famous poets
All of the time in my futile attempts
To teach poetry to the young.
I guess that I should just continue
All of the above, though I'd rather
Passionately kiss a few more poets.
I am remiss.
Author's Note: My poetic thoughts ramble.....

Great write. A romantic poet. Romance is good. Hang in there Joe, you'll find that special poet, just for you. :)
