Walk or run

Now do I walk or do I run
Toward that bright’ning, vibrant sky
Toward the rising, reddish sun
Now that the day at last is nigh?

How do I seize what’s yet to be
The destiny that lies ahead
The fate today will give to me
After the sky has turned from red?

What wondrous gifts has life today
What will I see ere day is done
Which stage is it on which I’ll play
And do I walk, or do I run?


I forgot to write a poem!

Whatever shall I do?

Give up and now forgo ’em?

Stop writing? Reading, too?

I’m feeling so embarrassed

But now the hour is late

So I will merely write this

And ‘morrow sleep by eight
