Wordsworth by Bob Atkinson

Wordsworth by Bob Atkinson
(c)2013 Bob Atkinson
in giving up one's purpose
can objectives of an age
allow themselves good usage
sad words upon white pages

or, taken now with context
of heavy leaden burdens
can we not argue the obvious
of things both vague and certain

did he not forge a new path
did he not guide our way
by telling all we needed
in simple objective phrases

his lessons since forgotten by
all but those seeing through the fog
of egos ever expanding
brought upon us by those charged

with responsibility
that ever lasting honor
of showing those not taught
a canyon left on its own
will fill with flotsam garbage

sad conflict created
in those hearts of learned men
carrying on as if they knew
that right of all events
