Thanks for joining me!
Good company in a journey makes the way seem shorter. — Izaak Walton
This is a try to conquer something new.
I think I need to stretch my brain a bit.
I’ll write one first, and then maybe a few
More if I can. I don’t think I can quit
Making rhymes that others’d like to read;
Might even try themselves if they are bold.
Who knows where this new exercise might lead.
I want to make a mark before I’m old.
This guy who reads my stuff has made me think
Of what I might be able to produce,
To grow my mind, to take me to the brink
Of some new place. I can’t declare a truce
On fighting time, of giving in to age.
This is a war I’m now willing to wage.
