Ode to a Muse

Ode to a Muse
Ode to a Muse

Restless muse,
take not your virtuous mind
and refuse my sentiments,
my grasping hopes of inspiration
upon your beauteous shoulders,
and the line of your face
a countenance I can abide,
as beauty is my minds play,
each word to mirror your precious being.

Yet you turn from me,
as if distracted,
surely not another poet
begging for your magical touch;
am I outmoded, eroded in my creativity,
to such extent you seek another,
or am I a petulant fool,
anger at myself the ruse,
when my poet’s spine is broke?

Oh muse, favour my intentions,
love and virtue my contention,
but what is yours, and
am I just a frivolous passing,
a poetic verse not lasting,
and can I sustain the likes of you,
to hold your heart in review
and to draw that inspiration,
as is my longing hope?

My words do flow with you in mind,
please be kind and favour my expression,
for this is my confession,
you are more to me than hope itself,
the good I see does lift my every thought,
and I can know what better future holds,
simply for you to be here;
so muse, turn not from me,
let our songs resound in eternity.

    I know with certainty, Tony, that your muse will never abandon you. You have a plethora of pages expressing the beauty of your heart and soul. How can your muse turn away from that? Not very likely, dear poet. Lovely verse.

      Thanks Phyllis, it is a scary thought though, being a poet. Glad you enjoyed it.

    I “muse-napped” your muse Tony..he he he he he he – I love this piece. As always you find such a unique way of looking at the things most people take for granted and it’s a real pleasure to read your words. Great job as always my friend!

    Great job with this verse, Tony. Hey, if your muse ever over-burdens you some time, can I borrow her 🙂 just for awhile?
