Notions of the Poet-Sage

Random thoughts flutter across a page And take shape in verses of expression Reflecting the notions of the poet/sage. While the actor repeats upon the stage Phrases acting out playwright’s impression Random thoughts flutter across a page. Both painting portraits of love and rage In concise words, the writer’s profession, Reflecting the notions of the poet/sage. Visually the reader will absorb, engage, Theatergoers easily observe the passion Random thoughts flutter across a page. Poets create images like a bird in a cage Their poems coming in and out of fashion, Reflecting the notions of the poet/sage. The value of writers the public will gauge Sometimes without the proper caution Random thoughts flutter across a page Reflecting the notions of the poet/sage.
