A Maiden Sally

She sits pensive, this maiden fair
In solitude, she contemplates
Sojourn of capitulation
for nourishment of her soul’s fare
to where her yearning culminates
her odyssey to temptation

      1. No worries, George . Whatever dyslexia is doing to your brain, I know one thing, your poetry is mind blowing. I thing it’s all to do with how deeply you feel about the wrongs that are going on in the world.

      1. Poetry writing is a good plan–I’m kind of on a writing break, trying to snap out of a temporary depression. Tomorrow I’m going to push myself out the door to buy groceries 🙂

  1. Don’t compromise your good values. You’re in the right to want freedom. However, in every movement, there should be a contemplation of whether it is beneficial. I think that’s what the poem is about. Am I right? You’re sojourning in “Capitulation”, and you’re being tempted to compromise some of your core beliefs.

    Everyone is like that right now. I think. Good poem. 🙂

    1. Yes, you are right .. spot on.

      I would most certainly never compromise on what I hold true in my heart and conscience.
      I would definitely do it my way even if it may seem the hard way.
      Thank you for the heads up.

      1. I did an analysis of it on my blog. I’m doing a series, which I intend to continue for a long time, of interpreting poetry here on the Website. I figure it’d be good to listen instead of always be writing so much.

      2. You welcome.
        Yes, i do like to read too .. sometimes ignites thoughts , inspires ..
        I think writin is about letting it all out and it’s art so one need never be self conscious about what is so beautifully aesthetic.
