LiGHT STORiES TO BRiGHTEN YOUR DAY

Writer's Woe

—Julia Fenstermacher

If I were to write a song

Should I make it short or long?

Too many words I lose my hearers

Too few and trite, my heart’s less clear.


Should I write for them or me?

Which one stamps my pedigree?

If I sing for money, I should sing happy

But we know those songs can turn out sappy.


I know! I’ll sing a song of love

Of broken hearts and swirling doves.

Of dedications, mooning, swooning,

Lovers’ words in twilight crooning. 


High then low, I’ll swing my tone,

Keep them wondering where we’re going.


But wait, 

I'm feeling, 

I must write

Heedless of the market fight,


Or she, the muse, 

will fade 

like wax.


Because I wrote on

on money’s backs.
