Poem: I Should Like To Write

By Dave “Doc” Rogers

© 20090322

 

I should like to write

 

‘Tis a proper English thing to say

 

I should like to write

A whimsical fancy, a childish foray

 

I awake from dreams of stories grand

Of adventures and quests, might of hand

Of perils and dangers, a hero’s stand

Pushing off bed my feet to floor land

 

I stumble to shower; heat, soap, wake

Dreams on hold, this the road I take

The office, the people, my heart ache

Reality hit, no time to make

 

The creative, delayed one more time

Swirling within, thought in mystic rhyme

Stories worth telling; to not, a crime

Dearest held at bay; pain felt, sublime

 

Money to be had, work is required

Labor in exchange, skill to be hired

Time given in compulsion now mired

Boards, the meets, the endless task list sired

 

To sit and retell stories well done

From rising to falling, the day’s sun

The pen and paper, my companion

Alone with my thoughts, working day one

 

I should like to write

 

‘Tis a proper English thing to say

 

I should like to write

A whimsical fancy, a life’s foray

I’m a writer / thinker more than I am a blogger. I like to think about things a bit then throw them out there in word form for viewing; sometimes even for feedback.

Today is Friday and All Hallows’ Eve. It’s a nice day so far in north Texas. My wife finangled a projector and we use that to host a movie for our neighbors. We’ve done that several times. Last year for Hallowe’en’.  We watched Mel Brooks’ Young Frankenstein. Very few ‘got it.’ But it was funny. 🙂

This time around it’s Disney’s Haunted Mansion with Eddie Murphy. It should be funny. He has a good sense of the comedic.

Don’t eat too much candy. Watch your sugar intake. Be safe and have fun with your kids and your neighbors. Or go to a Fall Harvest Festival run by one of your local churches.

Cheers!
Doc.
