No matter where I am, my pad and quill are always with me...this was another inspiration from Campelot!


Compelled to write,
I have no choice,
My muse demands
To have a voice!
I didn’t choose
For this to be,
But there’s this thing
Inside of me,
Compelled to write
My feelings down,
To the quill
My hand is bound!
But when I’m gone
And my soul is free,
I’ll leave behind
A part of me!
For in my words,
I’ve placed my heart,
To share forever
When I depart!

Tell your muse you have a choice
That pesky muse will understand
Your voice proclaims the soul is free
The quill posts truth by your very hand

But when Iím gone
And my soul is free,
Iíll leave behind
A part of me!

And that will be a fine legacy, Anna. A fine poem well-shared. Thank you. Love and best wishes to you,

The pace, the flow, the rhyme, the words are just glorious.
When the poem arrives you just have to penn it, before it runs away.
I can feel you sense of urgency to scribble the poem where ever you are, then, at home, try to decipher the quickly scribbled notes.

Indeed, poetry does leave a part of ones soul.

I well know the feeling, Annabel. There are times that I so desperately want to write but, for me, there has to be more than a desire to write as my mind must hit on something that I "want" to write or everything put onto, so to speak, paper is false to me. For me I must have inspiration or all appears false.
Your friend, Mark
