    dotsLife&Death of Poetsdots

    It's late at night.
    The world slumbers peacefully,
    but I am restless.
    I plunder the bookcase for an ancient tome.
    Thumbing through it's fragile, jaundice pages
    the dead speak to me.
    Their musky breath rise from the page,
    carrying their whispered wisdom
    across the centuries seperating us.
    There is no past. No future.
    Only the eternal present
    as they share with me their lives
    and their experiences.
    They are not dead,
    just asleep on the page.
    "Wake up tired troubadours
    and sing your song of life."
    They are immortal
    for as long as words remain.

    I love this line, it sums up your poem in that last line. This line really does it for me!

    You have a great way of keeping your poems simple, yet they are compelling and very clear. I am loving your work!

      Man this one is truly masterful, " There is no past, no future. Only the eternal present" that is genius. Inspirational.

      Nice, but I think it should be jaundiced because jaundice is a noun.
