Frosty Muse

I often felt that Robert Frost –
was in my own inflamed heart –
For when all else seemed harringly lost –
my pen had no trouble to start…

And when I oft did wonder aloud
if his spirit was slinking around –
the words simply came – proper and proud
as if he were I –  pound for pound.

And thought I should test this wise –
to prove it bullduggery or not…
I sat at a table three times the size
with nere miniature pen to blot!

And what upon my parchment wrought –
these magical words appeared –
“’tis just you, you flaming idiot!”
and to myself I’ve come so endeared…
