Poetry

Poetry is a bunch of words,
Some in rhyme, some in verse.
While others they can touch your heart
or cause a tear to fall.

A poem can be much more than that.
It can make you think.
About the many issues
the poet has brought in.

Some are really silly.
Like this one I've wrote
It's written about nothing
except poetry and prose.

poems can be individual
for everyone to read.
as each person reads one,
a different world You will now see

    Just like you did with this one, I love poetry for its all different forms. Poetry is well-accepting of any style and expression the poet desires. This one's not silly. Poetry is literary fun at its best. =)

    I enjoyed this poem about poetry! I agree, when someone reads a poem, they interpret it by their own experiences, so it is different for everyone. I love it when a poem takes me to another world, even if it is only for a little while. Great work on this one, I really enjoyed it!...Thank you for taking the time to read my poems. I appreciate all of the nice comments!

    I agree, I like falling into the poem and being taken along on it's journey. To see, feel and hear the story the poet is trying to convey. The secret is I enjoy your poems Kelly. =)

    Hello Thomas, i love poetry and the different worlds and interpretations each one has. sometimes I write poems with more than one meaning purposely. I like what you said in your second stanza. sometimes when i don't get a poem... I just smile, and decided to see the beauty of it anyways... thanks for sharing your thoughts... Linda

    Thank you Linda, this was a poem I wrote for my lit class at uni. I believe the best poems you read are the ones that you take something away with you from. A line, A phrase or a thought. I am glad you have from here.
