The Moment

by Steve Cook

When the moment does not lend itself

To the poem's enchanted staves,

Nor inspire the magic of rhyme,

Or the spirit's prison-break as the soul

Slips its chains through the bars of a song,

One can always take heart by remembering

One that did or, better still,

Dream up one that will.

And so I do.
