For today I am poemed out,

No more will I of my talent flout,

Such is vanity or at least just about,

I will take a day off, maybe,

To clean the cobwebs of my brain, out,

That should be a scene to watch, a total rout…


The poem light extinguished,

Unable am I of poetry to distinguish,

Tired of listening to the rain on the roof,

Ernesto did make a mark of this I got proof…


My lil’ writer’s elf is on holiday,

Possibly somewhere to catch a ray,

On a beach he is with legs splayed,

If I knew where I would send a bouquet,

If he does pass somewhere near your way,

Tell him we miss him & are in terrible disarray…

It seems to be IMPOSSIBLE for a poet to be poemed out, as you here so amply demonstrate, Ed.... we just make a poem out of it and damn me, if mine aren't probably better than the "real" stuff to start with! :)) Seems good here that your Muse is on a break... funny how that laid-back attitude sounds so familiar though, huh?? Perhaps Rufuz could write about it... Nah... jus go sniff a tree instead... that's poetry in itself, init?? :)) LOL K xx

Always good to take a day off every now and again, Ed; give yourself and the Muse a quick vacation, and pretty soon, y'all will be back to delighting the Den with your quick humor in verse! LOL at Karen's review. She said it better than me.

(((HUGS))), love and prayer, Karla.

Give the Ruffer a great big kiss from his Auntie Karla.

You all poemed out?? NEVER! Never in a million years! LOL Adorable write, adorable you! You make me smile; thanks for the grins today!

(((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in Tx., Karen Lynn. :D

Hmm..on that note, I wonder if I will ever get all story-ed out. Naaaaaaaaaaaaah....LOL Never! LOL

This was the first construct I pulled up, and man oh man can I relate to the sentiment.

The fact that you can write so much Ed is a testament to your muse - an ocean of feelings that need to be grasped and put down. Over three thousand titles is an a amazing acchievement, in my mind anyway, and everyone needs to dive into another body of water occasionally. Peace!

Give Rufus a hug and an atta-boy from me.

All writers and their muse elves definitely need a day off now and then. Take Rufie Boy for a relaxing walk - but keep your eye out for that Spiderfoot guy.
