I’d rather read than write 

And then, cup of tea, book in hands one night, 

I thought, I'd really rather read than write. 

Writing, it seems, is really not for me. 

It's too much like trying to be a tree; 

the ones that came before do it so well. 

Trying to be a tree: a living hell 

In cool, wild forests that tease and delight, 

those trees grow and stretch into shapes just right. 

And there’s me, knees digging into the earth, 

Looking up at the forest’s canopy. 

I exist in shadow. I eat, drink, love,  

hate. I run in the dark. I'll be Keats’ dull  

star, steadfast, assured, living a life full 

There will never be an empty winter.
