A Poetic Dream


I want to be a great poet
Make you think and ask questions
Seek the answer to know it
Beautiful poems I want to write

Deep in your heart I want to touch
Bring what I see into your site
Can I get you to laugh and cry
Write my poetry on your mind

I want to write with conviction
To be able tell stories of rhyme
That makes me have to consider
How to write every line

With words new things I will try
Invoke an emotion inside
So you have an experience
Lay it all out on the line

To all the poets of the world
The masters of this very gift
I want to learn to write from you
And give my poetry a lift

So Edger Allen Poe will teach
Shakespeare will educate too
Wordology I will seek
Till I am a master that's new

    Tis true, tis a nice ambition and not one that is out of reach. You do have the right idea. Read good poets and pay close attention to structure, spelling and punctuation. Those are the signs of a good poet. Read mine - Storm Song -

Not you as some pale poetling, seated at a desk, lisping cadenzas
