The Days Are Long

I know the days are long right now.
Fatigue of concentration:
It shows upon you, every day,
But that is your vocation —

To think, to solve, to work, to do,
To make it all come right:
Those keep you busy all the day
And partway through the night.

But what you do’s important, and
You’re good at it – the best –
Just know: love will be waiting when
You finally get
To rest

[Relationships are often as much about this as anything else. – Owen]

  1. Thinking back on your poem about writing poems folks read more than once … I’ve already read this a few times, and I’m leaving it open to read it again later. Thank you for a lifted heart.
