POETS AND POETRY

Written by: Brian Strand

What is poetry
who is a poet
and
        well may
        you
         ask
POETRY
       is   structured
              prose
poetic
prose
           that fits
           a frame
one
      like this
             is an
example
        of a structure
or more often
in lines like this
called a strophe
or stanza or verse
often
         the 
              structure
has
a
      particular
                     form
whatever
the structure
it is constructed
to
    be
          read
                   aloud
A poet is a writer
who reads his verse
                        aloud
to himself
       then to others
A poet 
           never
                      stops
being
poetic
           even
                     when
he
no
       longer
                  writes
