The Poem That Inspired MeA Patch Of Old SnowThere's a patch of old snow in a cornerThat I should have guessedWas a blow-away paper the rain Had brought to rest.It is speckled with grime as ifSmall print overspread it,The news of a day I've foregotten,If I ever read it.

My Inspired PoemAn Old OakThere's an old oak in a corner That I should have guessedWas hundreds of years old,The shimering leaves twinkled in the sunlight as the sun set to the west.The oak strong and dependible, Like a mans best friend,Home to many animals in the wild.
