Poetry: A Short Poem

Updated on November 20, 2016


Poetry is the tree, the fruit, the rock

Poetry is the square, the root, the quill, and the dot

Poetry is the words, the letters, the beat, the song

Poetry is the fast, the slow, the short, the long

Poetry is the laugh, the cry, the smile

Poetry is the mother, the father and the child

Poetry is the earth, the rain, and the sky

Poetry is the what, when, where, and the why

Poetry is the sun, the moon, and the stars

Poetry is the party, clubs, and the bars

Poetry heals, hurt, and help

Poetry is the seen, heard, and felt

Poetry is books, stories, and fables

Poetry is graphs, charts, and tables

Poetry will cause a listener to be shocked and amazed

Poetry is the ink and words on this page

      This was an amazing assimilation and summation of the essence of what poetry is made up of. Thank you for this bright spot on our day. whonu
