Before I Sleep

Just past the starting line

Up too early ~ life divine

“And miles to go before I sleep.”*


Here I am ~ for 24 hours

Each hour, my mile

As my words begin to pile


22 more now, before I sleep


On the edge of each line

Empty until the ink

Starts flowing


How many words

How many lines

Many pages filling

“And miles to go before I sleep”


Quote from Robert Frost “Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening”
