Poem: Be


I
be
me

leaf
be
leaf
be
life
belief

be lithe
be light
be right
be wrong

be all
day long
be along
and still
belong

be one
be two
be free
be you
be us

belay
be lead
bleed
bled

don’t let it get
inside your head

be up
be down
be square
be round

bee
be
bee
buzz
away

life is lived
until we’re dead
be alive
be unafraid
be whatever
you have become

just be
and be
and be
some more
then be away
happily
being on
your way.

    I really enjoy this Mr Merlin. I think I shall print out this delightful piece. It makes me want to bee free and I thank you for that.

    • Thank you for saying that my blogging friend! It was inspired by a pleasant interaction with a student who exuded a contagious passion for her work – I’d been more curmudgeonly than usual because I am back to work from 2 weeks of vacation. It was good to be reminded that life is good. And you have also reminded me of that fact by saying such nice things!
      So be unfettered!
