"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 Sacred poetry feeds the soul, like slow rhythms of ever green nature, And the heartbeat's anticipation of sooner, finding satisfaction in later. Anything is possible in verse, as it flows from fanciful, unbound mind, Giving sublime inspiration and comfort, in vibrant styles, one of a kind. Poetry is as vital to wholesome living, as is pursuing your rosy dream, Though the sun reigns at lemon noonday, under thick clouds of cream! When you find yourself wandering, poesy rhythm will guide your feet, In the dance of self discovery and insight, which makes life complete. Poetry warms eager hearts steadily, and adds pure romance to living, Like gazing at the twinkling Milky Way, and stars which keep on giving.
