I Want To Write A Poem – An Original Poem

Hello there,

How are you?

Yesterday, I wrote a poem – because I wanted to. (Get it?)

It sounds best when it’s read out loud, so I created this quick and goofy recording of me reading it. I hope you like it!

I Want To Write A Poem

Ellie Cummins

 

I want to write a poem,

But I don’t know what to say.

My head is feeling useless

And my pen is writing gray.

 

I could write about the future,

Or perhaps about the past.

I could write of quests and daring,

But I wouldn’t be the last.

 

My eyes just feel so bleary

And the words are simply bleak.

My hand is cramped and weary

And I’ve no words left to speak.

 

I could write about the sunrise,

How it sparkles in the air.

I could write about the night skies

Full of starlight everywhere.

 

But I’d really rather not

Because I can’t think what to tell.

These silly words are all I’ve got.

I’m prepared to say farewell.

 

The parting is the grievous part,

For I must say goodbye.

I feel a wrenching in my heart

And struggle not to cry.

 

I know I haven’t words to share,

But still I feel unsure to say

“Goodbye to you and may you bear

This long and poem-empty day.”

 

Perhaps you feel the bitter slight

Of having not a rhyme to read.

For after reading of my plight,

You’re left with nothing to proceed.

 

It’s not my fault, I promise you!

It’s just that I’ve run dry.

I want to write, indeed I do,

I’m just too tired to try.

 

I want to write a poem,

But I don’t know what to say.

So I won’t waste a bit more time

And bid you now, “Good day.”


I’d love to hear your feedback!
