For how Long will i Rest?

Before the fire is dowsed, 
before time runs out, 
before it takes 
all my might to muster 
that in me which 
writes a poem,
I must seek 
divine inspiration 
like a lover who can search
the ends of the earth 
for his beloved.
For how long will i rest?

  3. Search for inspiration, search for the heart just to write ... I understand these, as do so many of us. Well written.
