Is the third time a charm?

 

Third Times a Charm 2.jpg

What words then do I write

When the ink is not to trust?

A plethora of letters yes!

The thoughts, themselves, disgust.

Do I have words left to say

That will not cause alarm?

Can I wake and try again

The third, perhaps, a charm?

  1. Im not a poem critique, but I do judge art when I see it. Line drawing somehow allows the viewer to fill in the blanks,as it were. Your art work here is excellent.

    1. I’m voicing this opinion because of an October 1943 Wee Wisdom magazine I’ve managed to save. Inside are many line drawings. The one that stands out most is a boy and girl raking oak leaves. Somehow I’m able to take away more from the drawing than if it were a photograph.
