The Ruse of the Muse

The Ruse of the Muse

A Poem by Legion
"

So true. It is so fickle.

"
The Ruse of the Muse

It tempts with visions
To fill the void of paper
'Till pen is in hand.

Writing a comment to this inspired my muse to get off his butt and do some work! Also, I can relate-- which is far less poetic than what I'd originally written, but makes the same point

I started smiling as soon as I read this. The muse forces us there, doesn't she? She forces us there even if we then sit for hours, pen in hand, not knowing what to write.

Enjoyed.
