WRITING, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: A man who keeps a diary, pays
Last Line: Of fulness than of emptiness.
Alternate Author Name(s): Pollex, D.; Walker, Patricius
Subject(s): Diaries


A man who keeps a diary, pays
Due toll to many tedious days;
But life becomes eventful -- then
His busy hand forgets the pen.
Most books, indeed, are records less
Of fulness than of emptiness.
