Tinker Posted April 21, 2011 Share Posted April 21, 2011 Just my reaction after reading T.S. Eliot's The Love Song of J Alfred Prufrock Advice to old Prufrock You prowl the streets at night haunting skid row dives.| The catlike yellow fog clouds your mind and lulls your soul to sleep. The women may speak| of another hero, it is no matter, jealousy diminishes. You have known them, yet still they distract. You, not they decide your course. The clock ticks steadily but it hasn't stopped. Fear and doubt freeze the spirit just as hope opens the door and allows artistry to flow freely. Step away from the dusk and walk into the dawn. The mermaids sing for you if you just open your heart. Dare to take pen in hand and you may find some will listen. ------ Judi Van Gorder Quote ~~ © ~~ Poems by Judi Van Gorder ~~ For permission to use this work you can write to Tinker1111@icloud.com Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
