Susan - by Bob Atkinson

(c)2013 Bob Atkinson

what Paris does for our hearts
town of Susan did for theirs
nine thousand years of civilized
carried on with their own standards

why could they not inform us
tell tales of their daily lives
give to future generations
what would open our eyes

we have in our true destiny
a charge of challenge great
provide that literary document
upon which our lives rage

our wants, our hopes, our charity
our dreams of love fulfilled
simple direction of our souls
how we walk, talk and feel

true, in our bustle we
don't see ourselves from afar
so let us document our dreams
thus give them to the stars

Discipline of Poetry
