Manic Muse by Susan E. Birch

The manic Muse

Wakes me at 4 am

I just give in

And pick up my pen,

The Muse throws words

Which rattle my brain

Here we go again

Bleeding ink

Don’t stop to think.

Eventually

The flow slows

And the wounds close

Ink splatter

Soul matter

Then heart glows

And the Muse knows.

Susan E. Birch About the Author

When Susan was eleven years old a teacher, knowing her love of Literature and History, gave her a copy of The Complete Works of Shakespeare and a poetry anthology both of which changed her life.   When she opened the book of poetry it naturally fell open at a page on which was a poem called ‘The Cloths of Heaven’ by W.B. Yeats. She read it and was stunned as it was the first time words had actually drawn a picture in her mind.  Later, reading the book of Shakespeare, she found Sonnet 18’ and found the answer to why poets wrote poetry. From then on she was an avid reader of poetry and fell in love with the classical poets.
