Charily Poem Example

Words

We meet on equal playing fields,

we strivers wielding pens,

with timid hopes, exposing thoughts 

to harsh or candid critique.

The selfsame words are ours to use

in manner of our choices.

They lay in helpless, inert piles 

until maneuvered by our pens.

Just as the paint and brush await

the artists soulful touch

or notes without composer's skill

are only noisy sounds;

just so a simple word can be

an ignored out of fashion thing,

until lifted by the poet's skill

into phrases for the ages.

Some have used proud words in prayer

that others use in curses.

We poets take them charily

and in literature we mold them.

The gifted take a simple word

and recognize its virtue,

They can combine, connect and phrase

as no one has before them.



Dear Reader, take these offered words

and mentally assess them.

The author hopes the unity of thought

will have made them worth writing and reading.
