Poems Can Be

Poems can be jubilant spring Melodies caught, lyrics to sing Hope's revival, heartbreak's surcease The joy of ink-stained paper's crease Reposing grace on summer swings Cathartic burn - sweet biting sting Feet-blistered walk through fiery rings The repressed flame and cold release Poems can be To capture flight on falcon wings To waltz upon the width of string For horizontal height increase For fervent war, for supple peace Questing words expose everything Poems can be. 7/25/19 For the Rondeau contest Sponsor: charles messina

Oh! This got POTD! Totally missed that, sorry! Anyway, before I even noticed that, was going to high-five you for the sheer colour and ENERGY of this, which pretty much captures my own excitement about poetry. Nailed it!
