My Poetry

Most famous poets works don't rhyme
They speak of good and evil - wrong from right
About all good things in their time
Of long ago and far from sight

I can't understand their thinking though
I like to write of things I know
Like daily things, the sky above
And about all the people that I love

And I'm all about this rhyming thing
Why not let your words just sing
Write them down, give them a chance
To make your tongue want to dance

Now I realize a great one I'll never be
Written down somewhere in history
But I believe inside you and me
Lives inside all of us, a little poetry

If you don't believe this, just open your door
The wind blows - birds sing and so much more
Turn off the noise and the world behold
Like ours, its poetry fits no mold

    You are wise to know, it only are the things we "Know"......that we can really do justice to.......it shows in your poems. Never are they forced or pretentious. Just beautifully written! :)

    What an awesome last line that is! Why should poetry be conformed to anything but what comes naturally from your pen? I tend to drift off to "far off things", when I write, but the everyday subjects still play a big role. Just write what's true to you, that's when people are the most moved... enjoyed this one!

    Poets of old wrote in what I call 'Broken English' and dialect of their day. We are now modern, they don't necessary say. I personally don't see their attraction to my writing senses. I see me, and if others see me. Then I am equal to them and nothing more. When you write like you have never before, you become great within you Delysia. No one needs followers to be greater or lesser than who stands or sits beside you. I love this piece. Have a lovely weekend, James :) xx

    Fine writing, Donna. Somehow the ability to work with rhyme escapes me. You've done a lovely job of it here. I agree with Heather about the last verse. Jack

    You ARE a great one on the Soup, Donna! This is such an insightful piece. I love the rhymes. The last verse should be our motto.

    If I can't rhyme, it don't seem right. That's the reason for my insight. To share some rhythm and sing a song. So thanks to you, we'll sing along. :)
