Further To Roam

You can no more teach poetry

   than a tiger to hunt

 

It must first be inside you

   from those things that you’ve done

 

You can no more teach poetry

   than an eagle unflown

 

If the words just won’t come

  —you’ve got further to roam

 

(Villanova Pennsylvania: April, 2015)
