I Had an Idea for a Poem

I had an idea for a poem

and if I were to own the poem,

I’d have to stop and not roam

the yard doing chores at home,

but the hedge needed trimming

and small patch of grass mown

and before it was known

the poem just up and had flown,

and so I just sit here and groan

knowing that the faintest ink

is better than the best memory

ever known.
