A Bizarre Eulogy

I recognize the work this marker did,
Helping to color all the dino-cats,
With its quite useful hue of grayish-green.
So sad since I that hue’s decline have seen:
I’ll miss that marker, but it’s work is done.

At least it’s been used up, did not dry out,
Fulfilled its purpose, a good marker-life.
For people perhaps that could be a guide,
To find their purpose and to live it well —
To do what one was born for, fear aside.

The picture I colored that inspired me to write this poem, a tribute to my dying marker

I endeavored to write in blank verse for this one. Linking with DVerse OLN, before DVerse goes on summer break. 🙂

  1. I had 2 pens go dry on me today. I wasn’t being productive, just unlucky. Good thing I’ve got about another half-dozen or so standing by, eh?

    Really dug your eulogy. Thanks

  2. A fun poem, and a good message:

    “For people perhaps that could be a guide,
    To find their purpose and to live it well —
    To do what one was born for, fear aside.”
