A Blank Page

By @Joyful17

Chapter 1

I love an empty page.

So many things can be done with it,

True and free, like a horse without a bit.

The eggnog hue welcomes me,

Inviting me to just sit a try,

It hands me a key,

And whispers “Your pen is your ally”

Many great works of art,

With a blank page to start.

Colors, faces, freedom, history, and science,

It is to any sort of ignorance, a proud defiance.

Look around at our world now,

It is because of others: artists, writers,

Painters, scientists, inventors, and fighters,

Sat and wrote with a furrowed brow.

Many things today we would not know,

If long ago,

On blank pages people did not sow.

    On second line it feels like there is something missing. I love the poem very creative and very well thought through. So I kept reading that first three lines.

    It should be

    “So many thing can be done with it,”

    Just a little advice 🙂 Hope you are having a great day!

      Thanks! I wrote this poem a few years ago, and also felt that it was missing, but decided to keep it the same. I will add to it, now that I know that someone read it!
