I have heard

    • Hello fellow poets. I am originally from a very small very remote town in the woods of northern Maine.The town had a population of 560 souls.I was brought up( in what some would consider to be) abject poverty.If I was I never knew it. Simply due to the fact that everyone around me was in the same "boat".I have been writing from my teens. I enjoy the woods to this day. I hunt fish and hike whenever possible.And through the years I've learned that there is a God and that I'm not it. "SLIM"

    I have heard

    I've heard the grass is greener
    On the other side.
    I've heard that you will never know
    at least until you ve tried.
    I've heard still waters
    they run deep.
    I've heard your judged by
    the friends you keep.
    I've heard the best is
    yet to be.
    I've heard the bells
    they toll for thee.
    I've heard it pours
    when it rains
    I've heard its loosers who stand to gain.
    I've heard you miss the water
    when the well runs dry
    and in the bed that you make
    is the place you lie.
    All this I've heard
    yet still and all
    I'm still not ready
    to heed the call.

    I have heard the word, :)

    To have great poets there must be great audiences too.
