On my I’m in a muddle
And not sure what to do
I get to sit behind a table
Writing, “From me to you.”
Do I sign, “To you my dearest friend?”
Or just the date and my signature?
Elaborate or write mushy notes
Is it proper at a signing tour?
Will I use a fancy feathered pen?
With a plumb of white or pink
Or an expensive easy writer
Maybe a Bic, cause it has ink.
Should I have my photo taken
And put on display for all to see?
I could put it in a scrapbook
Just to save for my family
Is it impolite to brag a bit?
Or feel important for the day?
Even though I am most humbled
To be honored in this way.
Boring I’m sure for some of you
Interesting and inspirational for some
The story of a little girls dream
And just how far I’ve come.
So when I sign my books next week
And the week that follows that
I will be thankful for the words that flowed
Knowing beside me the Good Lord sat.
This painting of mine reminded me of the PLUME feathers in one of those pens one uses at weddings so that is why I used this picture for this poem. I could see it now. You would not be able to see me past the feathered pen lol.
