Giving Away a Poem
We may believe in singing for our supper, but not in writing poems for our reading. Although this month's Word & Question game lets entrants earn more entries in my annual Giveaway, all of the players are playing for the love of poetry rather than an extra ten points. Which is totally fine! =)
Question: What do you want for your birthday?
A poem, please--and thirty more:
One for each year past the door.
A muse to be my golden goose
And to ensure my store.
But here's the catch: how can I hatch
The lyrics into lore?
What use, dear muse, I must implore:
Why I must I beg, with every egg,
Each chicken I can only count,
Milk I can never spill?
I only wish to have my fill
And to write what words I will
From my own full fount.
If there are no more golden geese,
A poem for a present, please!
I know they do not grow on trees,
But I wish for them still.
There was actually only one other player this month. He happens to know my birthday and my age, so I can't help but think these prompts are his half-year greeting! I just hope he likes what I've come up with in response.
Dylan, whenever you're ready, link up your poem! =D
