'Good Poetry'


A sentimental inscription
expressed with thoughts
about a topic of substance
in artistic rhyme and form
excites even in free-verse

Poetry has originality
of content and style
intuition dictates
its composition
presentation

Whether or not
the author is well-known
it's the expression that matters
over the personality who composes
for an honest expression is good poetry

    Yes, in good poetry it is the expression that matters far above the person who composes! ! Your definition of poetry is quite convincing! ! (Report) Reply
