Poetry from within
   


WONDERS OF THE MIND






I nothing know of death and war



Or what took place in days of yore



Not how the universe was made



And what made Genghis Khan invade



Or why the Earth goes round the sun



Or why the rain makes me so glum



I only know that Fateís been kind



And given me a fertile mind



So I can picture many things



The lives of peasants and their Kings



I do not want my heart to break



To yearn, to long, to fret or ache



I let my thoughts fly where they will



Across the oceans, vale or hill



And that excites my every bone



Takes me far away from home



Sets my mind to picture things



See places that each new day brings



And from these thoughts, imaginings



Is where a poem then begins



No, travel doesnít have to be



The way to nurture imagery



Itís in the mind where wonder starts



Form words that warm the coldest hearts



A better place no man could find



Than wonders that lie in the mind
