Lasting Poem


Poets as humans are finite
but all their poems are infinite
few may be remembered at all
yet each one's poetry can not fall
as it shall remain as an instrumental
mark as a treasure quite monumental

Sentiments expressed in poetry
are unique art with salient beauty
which excite creative imaginations
that enthuse intuitive compositions
of instinctive notion about the essence
depicting variable emotional existence

Life, love, joy, relationship and family
are poetry to the poet's soul instantly
which common people may think as lie
yet such become an inspirational stimuli
for all bards to inscribe with expressive wit
character of a lasting poem that is quite great

    poems are finite- -very true.
    somehow poets will be finite too
    when their poems are appreciated and believed
    very nice. (Report) Reply

    Words are precious, can break heart., hurt feelings. But given the right words can change lives, lift spirits and provide the strength that so many need. How wonderful it is for a poet to express their heart. Thank you for expressing yours (Report) Reply

    Though poets die, their great poems stand the test of time. Everything is a subject for an imaginative poet and with chiselled words, he puts up an enduring structure... a pleasure dome! But unfortunately the common people sans poetic heart fail to see its beauty! Great job, Marvin! (Report) Reply
