Poetry in Motion


Does the poet live his own words
Measures up to what his verses promise
Strives for the heights his thoughts reach
Plays the part his writings reflect
Goes to any length to be good
Rids himself of all meanness
Is generous kind faithful trustworthy in his personal life
A lover a friend an aide a benefactor,
Or at the end of the day
Just a preacher
Who never is as tall as his sermons
But remains a run-o-mill guy
Who endowed with poetic skill
Spins in self-deceit webs of lies!

Does a poet ever endeavor
To become a poetry in motion?

    A good piece of writing, are we ever as big as our work? Who knows but it's nice to have this skill to help us muddle through life with a little more insight into ourselves than people who can't or don't write. Great poem x (Report) Reply

    A wonderful write calling for self introspection! Aren't we like preachers who are never as tall as their sermons? ? Enjoyed reading! ! (Report) Reply

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
