Tell me a story of deep delight.- Robert Penn Warren.

Tell me a story,
in this century, and moment of social media mania,
tell me a story,
of beautiful things and of deep delight,
spare me the bad news,
it’s not good for my sanity and for my heart,
don’t tell me about fear,
I’m no longer a slave to the fear of missing out,
Tell me a story,
not the one that goes viral but the one that gives me happiness and peace.


Tell me a story.
In this century, and moment, of mania,
Tell me a story.
Make it a story of great distances, and starlight.
The name of the story will be Time,
But you must not pronounce its name.
Tell me a story of deep delight. – Robert Penn Warren
