About The Muse

When he first saw the maiden fair,
It was love at first sight pure & rare.
While he fell in  love, she didn't care...
Photo-prompt - Magpie Tales; clicked by Ed Ross
He found her perfect; to woo her he was game.
He sought her attention, she found him lame.
When he invited her for a date, she never came!

Like others, he sought her time and company,
She had no time to spare for her admirers many!
A harrowing time for him & her; both were zany!
Picture-Prompt- Magpie Tales
He saw what no one else did; sensed her everywhere.
Top to bottom, front to back- she was beyond compare.
All he wanted to do is just comfortably stare and stare...

He wrote poems about her, expressing his love.
His love and love-poems became his treasure-trove-
Earned him riches as generous were the heavens above.

Then one fine day his perfect creation took notice of him!
She walked up, flashed her smile, took a sudden whim!
Magic of fame & fortune- he was no more imperfect or dim!

  1. Wow. Just Wow. Nice and interesting yet expressive. Liked it.

  2. If I were him, I would not forget that she didnt "see" him before he was famous. LOL.

  3. The climax is about his success as a poet and failure as a lover because she notices him only for his fame but not for his love, is this interpretation right? I usually open dictionary aside while reading your poems... and I learn. So, just wanted to clarify what I understood is right.

  4. The rich and famous is a catch that may easily fizzle off fast, the way they came. Happened often times. Very observant Anita!
