Poetry defined


Poetry is a sort of painting
Or a spurt of one’s emotions.
Sometimes, it revolts or judges.
Sometimes, it praises or condemns.

Obscurity is its beauty;
Subtlety is its finery.
Imaginations focus light.
Similes and metaphors aid.

Rhythm makes it the poetry.
Metres measure intonation.
Rhymes are ornaments for the sound.
Alliterations enrich tones.

Let it have some message, the soul.

Magna virûm! tibi res antiquæ laudis et artis
