A Great Poet Once Told Me

A Great Poet Once Told Me


A great poet once told me,

like a whisper wading

in the darkness of dawn,

that we are masters of our own fate,

and life’s but a walking shadow,

and that we are such stuff

as dreams are made on.

What it all meant, I still

do not know, and I find

myself trying to forget

that poet and all he inspired

me to do.
