"Peace of Mind" and "Poetry at Play"
Robert M. Hensel

            "PEACE OF MIND"

            Carry me out the ocean, where my drifting
            thoughts flow free.
            Guide them to a far distant land, that only
            the mind can see.
            There I shall paint a great portrait, of what
            this world should be.
            A place without senseless wars, and human poverty.


            "POETRY AT PLAY"

            A poem is but a thought, a mere memory
            caught at play.
            One's visions reenacted, by the passing of
            each day.
            Treasured waking moments I've accumulated
            along the way, shall be locked within these
            pages, where they're forever bound to stay.
