The cursor mocks me as it blinks;
With steady pace it winks and winks,
And words escape me, gone away –
I hope they will return some day.
No words to write have I today,
No words of wisdom I can say
As daylight fades to evening pale—
For in my world, well, all is well.
When problems come so do the words
Like scattered flocks of winging birds
That settle in the trees at night
To rest from their long-distance flight.
I do not mind this life of ease
Although my publisher’s not pleased
Because I’ve nothing to submit –
No words of wisdom or of wit.
So with this poem that has a rhyme
I’ll take my leave and spend my time
In study of God’s Word so true
So I can be inspired anew.
