thought i needed a poem on the Muse ... i suppose this will be my one and only. :)

Taps


Image result for muse in greek mythology


the nine muses; compliments of Delphi Guide



I went to her and drank my drams in twos,

the service smiled a welcome, one and all.

But, time and pens run dry, because the muse

will sound-off taps, and dusk will surely fall.


Like empty caskets lowered down below,

the darkled, black of ink no words will spill.

She stops at whim, her flow as omen'd crow … 

my raucous, cawing, craving heart -- be still.


I try to resurrect reluctant muse,

with no success, as looking in I see,

a dust that chokes and gags creative fuse,

that burns too short to lift her harsh decree.


She plays the taps when time is standing mute,

and reveille when want cannot refute.

Ah,
The title struck and drew me to your verse.
Beautifully rendered, My Friend, in all the magnificence a true Sonnet should be, and brilliantly displayed here in homage portrayed and paid to your petulantly stubborn muse.
It is the rare few who can compose a proper English Sonnet, and yours dances to the beat and rhythm every true poet's heart can feel. Your imagery is vivid, emotion compelling, and syntax that brings all to life upon the page … the workings of a master poet.
I think it's amazing, the flexibility in variety of artistic skill displayed upon your pages.
I am humbled by the generous mention of my name, as but a mere touch here and there was called for, you prepared so well.
Love the perfect picture choice, and the music(?) … hmmm, let's say a bit eerie, but it certainly gets the idea across. 😳

Ya know, Gene? I often wish I had a muse, but after reading this, I'm not so sure I could coax her to properly behave … LOL!
Thank you for sharing another of your excellent, skillfully, and artfully composed pieces … KUDOS! ⁓ Richard 🍃

BIG congratulations dear E! I think in this one You've accomplished all what a Sonnet is about, have to say too that Your subject is perfect to go along a sonnet, Your title... well again You knew how to chose it :), wonderful words with the mysterious feeling that a real Sonnet should have (or maybe isn't only me ;) ), the couplet are strong and speak it all, exactly as a couplet should do, well done Sir!

this has all my favorite bits in it Mr. Einstein:) a streaming cadence in rhythm rhyme and flow fine imagery and feeling conveyed something about the lines of 10 in succession that grabs you pulls you into the thought flows in a mesmerizing quality. This is a perfect construct no constriction felt at all can tell however this one took some effort but it was a joy to read!

Dear Mr E, what a delight to read a new poem from you. Expertly written with guidance from Richard. A beaut, I would say, in flowing meter and rhyme. I'm always a sucker for classical poetry. This one about the muse clearly explains how fickle she can be. Mine is certainly that way at the moment. All good wishes from across the pond.
