When poetry steps off the page

When poetry steps off the page, It has come of age, And is ready for life as a sage. When poetry steps off the page, It can many voices upstage, And becomes worthy of repetition on any stage. When poetry steps off the page, It can bring forth a new age, Or open a window to a long-forgotten anchorage. When poetry steps off the page, It can help us with the world re-engage, So we can break out of our cage, When poetry steps off the page, It can help us understand our rage, And present us with a softer image. When poetry steps of the page, Dressed all in beige, It gives its creator rite of passage in any age.

Marked as a FaV in an instant before commenting, All stanzas are perfect, The last one is a knockout "it gives it's creator the right of passage" What a poet you are,wow Panagiota
