Careful Then

'Wow, what a lot of passion preserved in print on pages' I marveled as I cleaned my poetry-cupboard yesterday. 'and this but a teeniest drop in an ocean of books'.

Down through the ages
Is thought’s passion
Pressed to pages

Careful then
What fingers bleed
Where years and years
From now They read
