Laws of Blogging 3 – Copying

Not mine, but so good
My thoughts drip to flood
To copy you a poem from a worn out book.

It’s sad that I should plunder
Another cloud’s thunder
But my words are far too simple and easy to overlook.

For my words sometimes fail me
Or like fanfares can hail me
Mine – rhymes of flatlines, theirs – of how the earth shook.

But to impress you I lose
The desire to choose
To copy you a poem from a worn out book.

    Loved the rhyme scheme and word flow on the last two stanzas

        That’s how it goes for me a lot: first few bits are crap, and then you find the highway.

        Must admit it’s not my fave. But In Rainbows tough to follow in a number if ways.

        After a lot of effort, I think Hail To The Thief would be my fav only because of its diversity.
