Veneta Donaldson: "Impasse"

One of Veneta Donaldson's marked-up pages

It's always encouraging to read about an excellent writer who has those moments when nothing comes together right. Here's one of Veneta's.

by Veneta Donaldson

I cannot write tonight; elusive words
Have taunted me until my weary mind
Bows low before its conqueror, nor girds
Its strength for one last thrust, however blind.

I needed words of truth and purpose clear
To frame the thought that near my heart has lain —
That each resolve to hold Truth's concept dear —
But though defeated now, I'll write again!
