Ars Poetica

So what will it mean
If I could capture a moment?
What will it mean to us and to our children
That I have, without question, discovered
Exactly how to say
With just the right words, rhythm and sound
What I felt at some moment?

Even as I write, compelled as I am,
I may never know exactly why,
Or what or to whom this writing serves.

Only one thing is certain;
It never really did serve me.
