Small Irritants

Has someone that you love done something to
Diminish your good quality of life?
Before you jump to talk the matter through
With inconsiderate husband or wife

A pause might take consideration for
Preventive of much future misery:
Would you this shortcoming so much abhor
If from police tonight a call there be

Telling you there had been an accident
And you would never see your love again?
From the perspective by that absence lent
Would you wish to return to moments when

It only be required to tolerate
Small irritants, such joy to recreate?

A poet is the strangest sort of soul
You in this life may e'er expect to meet
More broken even while more truly whole,
Innocently intending well, more sweet

Than any but a five year old should be
Unfit to meet a callused world's demand
Or to behave aught expediently
All grace in flight; an albatross on land

Do not the all too common error make
Do not fall into the too easy trap
Avoid the fatal egoic mistake
Imagining that poet be a sap

Powerful spirits classic and antique
Give voice when poets ope their mouths to speak
