sonnet #20


Dear friend, take up your pen again, compose

Those works of art that live and breathe and sing

The rhapsody of love and hope. Revive

Anew in you the spirit of the Muse

To guide, to entertain, and to enthuse.

Restore the democratic art, the urge

To write, embraceable, attainable

By all. Take up your pen, today, obey

God’s highest call: express the good, the true,

The beautiful. Articulate in verse

Life’s purest, deepest, noblest sentiments;

Preserve in rhyme and rhythm secrets sent.

Take up your pen again, the times demand

Your words be heard, your dreams rise up and stand.
