Poets At-Large

Speak to me in words I understand. Don’t let pompous attitude embroiled With your intellectual narcissism Cause you to judge my words with disdain Because I write with veracity and simplicity. Humility has such rich virtue, And when all material matter Is spent, is what will be remembered. There is such evidence left by Humble poets in their timeless poetry.

I am so happy to see people here are not only proud of their poetry, but are equally proud of being poets. I have read more poetry about poets on Poetry Soup and hope to read a thousand more. Thank you for the opportunity to experience your wonderful talent. Mac

So very true. This was the point I tried to reveal in Pithy Empurpled Writing. Your poem shows how important it is to write from the heart with simplicity. If words pass the understanding who benefits from what we pen. Great Job Love cookie
