  • The Poem I Should Like To Write

    The poem I should like to write was written long ago,
    In vast primeval valleys and on mountains clad in snow;
    It was written where no foot of man or beast had ever trod,
    And where the first wild flower turned its smiling face to God;
    Where mighty winds swept far and wide o'er dark and sullen seas,
    And where the first earth-mother sat, a child upon her knees.
    The poem I should like to write is written in the stars,
    Where Venus holds her glowing torch behind her gleaming bars;
    Where old Arcturus swings his lamp across the fields of space,
    And all his brilliant retinue is wheeling into place;
    Where unknown suns must rise and set, as ages onward fare
    The poem I should like to write is surely written there.
    No human hand can write it, for with a pen divine,
    The Master Poet wrote it each burning word and line.

    ~Margaret A. Windes~
