How Poetry Began

When David composed the beautiful Psalms,

   He did so without computers and roms!

      That's when poetry began.

         Old Dave wrote to inspire man.

            Ah!  If Psalms were set to music by Brahms!

Oooh I love this Bob. Psalms 23 still moves me profoundly to this day... I will fear no evil for thou art with me. Much more of a lighthearted limerick, this one.

If Eve met a Neanderthal a beautiful love poem could have been born first on earth I think so. You have given this credit to David..it was a psalm. Good. I have enjoyed it. Love. Rajat
