Poetry Is A Life-cherishing Force

Poetry is a life-cherishing force. For poems are not words, after all, but fires for the cold, ropes let down to the lost, something as necessary as bread in the pockets of the hungry." — Mary Oliver
Poetry is a life-cherishing force Nourishing my mind and inmost soul It's a therapeutic menthol caressing my pores Every moment I read, my happiness roll Each time I share my joy is an utmost pool Poetry is a life-cherishing source My unlimited reservoir of inspiration Storage of wisdom for life-going-coarse Quenching thirst of knowledge, no starvation For life’s beauty... more on satisfaction, adoration Poetry is my life-cherishing force Restoring my strength, driving my power Midst enervation from a long-day-course Found enough refreshment on my diversion hour Painting my life and thoughts flowing like a river
