“Feeble Attempts”–a poem

This is a new verse inspired by a line in C. S. Lewis’s book, Till We Have Faces.

I’ve listened to the poets’ lies

through all my many lives;

I’ve sought the dreams and oils

they’ve carried in their bags.

I’ve tripped fantastically into pages

of the fools and weak sages

frantically grabbing the air

encircling the time they ate.

I’ve even added my own two cents

to the lexicon of written words,

equally foolishly, no doubt,

and hungry for time as well.

No sage…I.
