'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

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
