I am not a Poet


When I felt pain
I sang
Not a famous song
Nor any verse in rhythm
I knew no elegy
Words came to tip of tongue
From the aching heart
Left marks there
Flew with air
Reached the pair of eyes
And the rain began
Now, I write
What used to sing
I claim not I’m a poet
I admit I am not
Simply I am
The representative
Of feelings mine.

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
