The Writing Time ~ A Poem By Walt Page, The Tennessee Poet

It is the writing time
The hour of night
When sleep won’t come
Somewhere between 1 and 3 AM
When the pain kicks in
And only writing can help
So you pick up your notebook and pen
Say, “Hello old friends”
And you start to write
It doesn’t matter what you write
It will all fall into place
Just let your mind flow
It knows where to go
Let your imagery build
There are no deadlines to fill
The pail on the hill
Will wait for Jack and Jill
Inspiration just hit
When I saw “pail on the hill”
So excuse me my friends
I’ve a poem to end

  1. Hey, Walt! Have you tried writing – Elfchen?? 11 word poem with five lines? Line 1 – one word; line 2 – 2 words; line 3 – 3 words; line 4 – 4 word; line 5 – one word – but not the same as the first word! They are really fun to write – short, sweet and simple! A great cure for writer’s block!!
