What is the right way to write?
There are a few ways, so I’ll set you aright.
First, seize your right—tis your right to write
And tis right that it’s so.
Write the sound of the birds in flight
Copy the might of the failing light
And the vast, encroaching night
Record the squabbles and the fights
The lazy arc of the summer kite
And humanity’s enduring plight
The nightmares that give you fright
And the growing season’s blight
None are too trite: W R I T E !
I don’t care, gape and stare
Note them all, bad or fair
Listen to the sounds that blare
And the subtle creak of the rocking chair
In the town square
Or in your private lair
But above all dare…
Dare to write.
Writing is the right way to write
Seize this right, and make it your rite.
