A Poem on the Website of
the Red Dirt Writers Society
Looking for a Poem
by Gordon Eskridge (Jan 2012)
Words are appearing in a line on the page
I wish that I had been born in the Victorian age
When all the world had been a stage
Then great words might flow upon this page
As if I was born in the golden age
Offstage I hear the still small voices of a younger age
Voices not worried about the minimum wage
But I am here in my older age I feel like a squirrel in his cage
Words are flying around and around in my head like the space age
but they are not making it to this page.
This is the website of the Red Dirt Writers Society.
