Treasure Island

Sandra Feldman


A Poet? No Way.!


Who would want to be a Poet?
They might think that you're insane,
For you go around reciting,
Twirling like a Weathervane.

    Here's my thoughts on the topic:

    In Defence of Verse
    - - - - - - - - - - - - -
    Why not pay heed?
    Why not indeed!
    To the topic of rhythm and rhyme;
    For it pleases the ear,
    And pleases the mind,
    And takes up little time. (Report) Reply
