Verse ...... All of the poetry in the world

Updated on October 1, 2015

Will it change the heart from
which it's born
Or cure the soul of
which is torn

Will it bring peace at once to
the begging soul
As if in the play on the stage
can it reverse the role

For what is it worth to anyone
but one dream that escapes
that tormented mind or the purest heart
as it breaks

Like the stanza of the perfect song or
a last flag in battle
the last breath of the dying man
the sound of a babies rattle

Tell me the truth what is all the poetry worth
but the value of one breath
Quickly go and find me the answer
before my poetic death

      Poetry is worth a million bucks! There is nothing that compares with words written from deep within the heart. I loved this Ed.

      Poetry is worth tons of inspiration to the poetry lover, but you're right--not worth as much as the breath of life. Deep message wrapped in beautiful poetry.
