An Ode to Poets
Ode to the poets
Reflecting on the poet, builds inside of me intrigue
But poetry's a concept some find hard to conceive
It's difficult for some to write with words that rhyme
writing lines of feeling deep in word and thought sublime
I’m curious as where this type banter will finally end
Will a new pattern of thought and speech with in me begin?
And will verbiage of this type contrive change inside my soul define
Should I bring out my meerschaum pipe and perhaps a glass of wine?
Isn’t rhyming just for poets and writers blessed with gift of song
I might find myself working on it through the day and all night long
Abandoning my work and setting aside priorities
Bringing forth discord, and instilling curt disharmony
Perhaps it is best if I retract and sit this venue out
Besides of my abilities I must confess I have my doubts
Imagination may soon fade and my inner fears win out
Novels and short stories shall take it's place and win the bout
So to all the gifted poets and writers of song and rhyme
That within your endeavors, much happiness will you find
As you put ink to paper, or on pale parchment grace with pen
Your imaginations flourish, and bring you great joy within
For poetry is created often from chaos or from loss
From Love that’s gone aria, heartfelt pain a pearl's cost
From emotions expressed within now dangling from a cuff of sleeve
Left unprotected, heart wide-open to the critique’s impede
From emotions deep beneath the skin exposing wide the heart
Expressing oft the pain and betray deep feelings too impart
So to contrivers of words and lyrics written in pages of time
May you bring forth inspiration and cause reflections in our mind
That we might pause a moment and depth of feeling may we see
And perhaps realize incentive embedded in your soliloquy
And as we reflect upon it may in its revelation see a glimpse
Of the world inside the poet and visions inside their mind us lent.
