The Butterfly Words Of On Screen Poets.



They flit through your brain

To charm your mind,

Yet slip through your fingers

Lost to time.


No way to grasp

And keep the hold,

No way to claim

Those verses told.


I wish the words

Were printed page,

For eyes and heart

There to engage.




Author's Notes/Comments: 

There are so many lovely poems on here,I wish I could have all my favourites in a book, to just pick up and read without having to search through to find them every time. I know modern technology is very clever and useful, but I still like to be able to grab a book and just read. And that's how this bit of doggerel came about.
