bob Posted November 13, 2015 Share Posted November 13, 2015 I wrote a very short poem To this paper I put my pen After writing for a while I read it over again. It wasn’t as I had planned it I started over once more I used words so very large They spilled onto the floor. I could not untangle them They are knotted and twisted so I tried rephrasing their meaning But the task was slow. I am going to gather them And place them in your care If you find time to sort them There’s a message you may share... zsdafovihsr lnkjdnbdafha jdfvdboiaertanb ;n ...mnbva mnnigd jlzij.,zdfisfnzf kdf oiaewuakrnv ;lbjk mqqofbmajvn/kb nml.cn’d ;,poawemdv98nadfvnb34nan mofiSDKjv kjd;ha NHIOAUEH Nijam,ozdfvnjusjibi YarnSpinner copyright 2015 Well...here it is the year of 2020. This bit of poetic nonsense still makes sense to me, however I think most of you have tried to read too much into it. Normally a poet’s words flow swiftly and easily, but while attempting to create a poem of deep meaning, words chosen, may not be of his normal vocabulary. What was meant to be a short poem, became a more difficult poetic structure of rhyme. After several attempts and failures, his choice off words seem to overflow...”They spilled onto the floor.” In exasperation, The remainder of his attempts are written in the poem about his final decision. The large jumble of letters, that have spilled onto the floor, he now places into the reader’s care. “If you find time to sort this jumble of large words, there may be enough letters to create a poem or a message you may want to share...” Robert G.
