Father's Take On Poetry


Few lines
From my head

Perfectly rhymed
Father said

It is not a poem
I changed course

Next few
I wrote

Without rhyme
Father said

It’s a prose
What’s makes a poem

I was in deep thought
And wrote on

Some truths
Like birth and death

‘’These smells
Like gospels

Poem is like foliage
Of your heart

Yellow
Falls on your page

With a sweet sound
Of music on the ground’’

He said.

Poem of the Day

poet Charles Stuart Calverley

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —
Who'd toil'd, and seen no holiday,
For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
