NaPoWriMo Day 25: Yeats

I will arise and go now, and go to Innisfree… 
Lough Gill. Co. Sligo Ireland

I made fun of Yeats in my day 9 poem,  but The Lake Isle of Innisfree  is a favorite… 

My NaPoWriMo North Lake Inspire poem…

 This moment.

Right now.

Seeming like nothing.

This is It.

You’ll spend your life looking ahead.

You’ll reach the distant sweeping shore.

When your feet are scarred, but the sand has cooled

When the shadows are long and the day is gone

You’ll look over your shoulder.

You’ll see this moment.

This one.

This fine moment.

The one you walked by 

on your way to… what?
