Without them my inadequate lips bumble
And through the dictionary
My heart catches the stumble
On the compelling entreaties of beauty
is my favorite line.
I like how you ended this piece without a period, so it just floats away like that. "Unbidden" is the perfect way to describe certain poems, yeah? Then it's like magic, like the hand writing it is not your hand but someone else's entirely. Touch of divinity, more like.
This is a nice and sophisticated write. Good topic and done interestingly and well too. The tone felt whimsical which definitely suits the idea of musing that is being addressed. I thought that how you described the words and coming to you and being you but at the same time not you was a very appropriate way of describing the writing process and I think my favorite part was:
"My voice would be silent but for them
I am the too quiet and untroubled man
Yet they race to discover an impression
Challenge me to write them
Explain them if I can"
But "untroubled man"? C'mon I'm sure you are just as plagued with problems as the rest of us are. Any way, I enjoyed it and that it has good merit to be called poetry.
