Wondrous Poems

Wondrous poems are melodies
Emancipated from live trees
Freed at last from trunk and limb
Freed at last to sing their hymn
Transplanted in the hearts they've torn
Transplanted by the poets they've borne
Echo in our hearts as rhyme
Echo through the sands of time
Written down with pen and ink
That all,
            That would,
                             Might stop and think
How wondrous a poem can be
That's written deep within a tree

It's hard sometimes I wish there was a way on the soup to mark the poems one has read.

aha, and on the same theme of tree but talking about poems, so not a parody, just a beautiful metaphor for poetry. I love this too.

Yes, this is one of my non-parody poems. I did do a parody of this Titled "Pathetic poems". Some poems cry out to be parodied. This is one of them. Thank you so much for enjoying my poems.
