ODE TO THE POET

Delivered from the heart
True poetry is born.
Clings to life within your mind
As clings a rose’s thorn.
~
Loud and boastfully the sound,
Or near silence is the tone
Bringing that of happiness,
Or deep chilling to the bone.
~
Pictures that you clearly see,
Soft and sometimes bold.
Until the trembling of the hand
At long last grows too old.
~
They panned the streams of life
And left to us their gold
A lifetime of words undying
In verses that they told.
