Classic and Contemporary Poetry
EXPERIENCE, by LEXIE DEAN ROBERTSON Poet's Biography
First Line: To write, I first must live, they said
Last Line: I cannot bear to write.
Subject(s): Love; Writing & Writers
To write, I first must live, they said,
Know life and love and truth.
And so i gaily ventured forth
To seek life with my youth.
I met Love on the broad highway
And teaching me to live,
He took my heart and sipped my lips
And left me naught to give.
And then Life caught and crushed me,
And left me spent and white.
Now only Truth is left...but that
I cannot bear to write.
