Poetic Advice


life is priceless
almost,
being one of its elements
time is sacred,
when next we meet
let poetry be short and minimal

limited by the page
lines numbered
thoughts precise, lexis concise
no maudlin or long drawn out
sentiments or foreplay

narratives devoid of cliche
winded metaphors
catchy phrases, life is priceless
time is sacred, this could have been
my greatest creation

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
