POETRY TODAY recited

Whence Wordsworth
danced with daffodils
the world of poetry
moved on with
symbols  of the inner  man
new poems soon began
 verse  was freed
to  explore
                   imagery
and the like
                   then
hand in hand
together were
soon  to reach
Eliot's waste land
So empty now of
flowers to
  while  away
the
hours
because
Without a voice it cannot sing
No echos in the heart will ring
Come read,contemplate,give it time
Euphony ,floats on tides of rhyme;
Set free from custom's tyranny
Alternatives in poetry,
Lineation and enjambment
become the poets's intrument.
Beware ,sans pace in patterned verse
Vers Libre may scans as prose, or worse
And stays a writer's curse
 
Listen to me read this poem on youtube under the name ichthyschiro
