Not a Drifter By No Means


A poem by Peter S. Quinn


Not a drifter by no means

Clean I'll come and go,

Follow whatever convenes

That onto my hours grow;

There isn't a place or purpose

That gets stuck up for long,

It comes just as it goes

Like a refrain in a song.


Drift like clouds into dawn

Be there with the light first,

White winged feathered swan

That brightly minutes thirst;

The coming of the hour

That has no others before,

To be there in all its dower

And open up others door.


Not a drifter but a dreamer

That gives away a thought,

A long way cloudlet steamer

Like deep hidden oceanaut;

With its waves and billows

That come and drift to shore,

What else who then knows

For there is so much more.
