Inspiration - Poem

Here is a poem that has a picture that corresponds with it slightly. I wrote the poem when I was bored, and I drew the picture to dedicate to my good friends that work at the Library.

By BushMaid

I stare at a white piece of paper so clean,
Dreaming of things that have never been seen.

Before my eyes things start to grow;
Clinging and springing on the page below:

A knight on a horse is galloping past;
Out flashes a race car, travelling fast.

A lady dancing in an old-fashioned gown,
A one-handed pirate wearing a frown.

A loud pistol shot, a civil war has begun;
Alien life forms in their ship on the run.

Figures from history leap from the page,
From every imaginable time and age;

Past to future, it sweeps me by-
Tales of love, adventure and lie;

Swiftly as came, the imaginations cease:
Leaving me the plain, simple white piece.

Only a piece of paper, that's all you can see-
Only a piece of paper? inspiration to me!
