The Poet Worthy of Praise

He or she who can put pen to paper	
And write words for all to cherish and savour,
Who can touch the heart and fire the mind
And make us see things as if we were blind;
Who paints word pictures, again and again
 With the swiftest strokes of a ballpoint pen,
Awakening feelings of wonder and awe
That, perhaps haven’t been sensed before;
Who makes heavy hearts feel at ease
As easily as the wind bends willow trees;
Truly, on that Poet’s words we should feed
For surely they’re worthy of praise indeed.

    This is exquisite, Paul! Giving praise when it is due is always noteworthy. So many fine poets pour their souls into their work, just as you've stated. This goes to my Favs.' List. Blessings, peace and joy, always, Audrey
