A Poet's Heart


A poet's wandering heart is precious
Only to a few eager souls, who hear
Their heart's songs echoed in his words.
That's why to them, the poet is so dear.

A poet's heart cannot be possessed
By a single soul mate entwined or not,
For a poet's heart is free to wander,
From heaven to earth without a thought.

Poets enjoy a unique friendship
And fraternity at home and abroad,
Their words can cheer wistful minds
And bind by friendship's invisible cord.

    We poets wander the universe in verse, letting our words travel freely all over the world,
    yet never losing the invisible cord that connects us. Truly outstanding poem Khairul! ! Love

    Beautiful expressions of a poet's heart. Truly a poets heart can not be possessed accept by his poetry. Yet in his wanderings he belongs to all. Thank you for letting me know about this poem and thank you so much for reading mine. We are fortunate to be able to connect from far off places through poetry. (Report) Reply

    A poet's heart cannot be possessed
    By a single soul mate entwined or not,
    For a poet's heart is free to wander,
    How right you are my friend! I cannot agree more. I wonder if we humans are meant to keep our love in a closed box like a house or let free to roam above... Thank you for share, a wonderful poem! (Report) Reply

poet Wilfred Owen

All sounds have been as music to my listening:
Pacific lamentations of slow bells,
The crunch of boots on blue snow rosy-glistening,
Shuffle of autumn leaves; and all farewells:
