She wrote a poem while at school
many liked it and praised her well.
She wrote a few more but then no one
found time to read and appreciate them.
Why did her friends lose interest suddenly?
Why they failed to notice her creative head?
One day she took the sheaf of faded poems
discarding it sadly along with her dreams.
She sold them to an old newspaper store
but divine providence had some other plans.
A publisher’s son saw the still lying papers
was overjoyed to read but could not trace her.
The publisher then had one published
every month in his popular magazine
He, hoping, kept the last line always blank
for his readers to fill it out and complete it.
A year passed by; He got a matching line
and another matching one on the next one.
It was time, he decided to invite the lost poet
and gave her share of the fame and appreciation
and made her creation known to the whole world
her past and her, would be delightful, future poems.
And no wonder, the Divine Creator was happy to see
the events as they happened just as He had planned
It was a great event with the blessings of all her fans
when our poet got married to the publisher’s son…
Note: Thanks to a fellow blogger through whom the Sun shines who put this seed of imagination in me with her recent post “Fill in the Blanks”…
