The Language Of Poetry Is Metaphor - Poem by Shalom Freedman

The language of poetry is metaphor
And irony and ambiguity
And beauty-

Beauty is the language of poetry
And metaphor and irony and ambiguity
And irony -

Beauty is the language of metaphor
And poetry without beauty
Is like poetry without metaphor
Like poetry without simile-

Poetry is poetry
Like beauty is beauty
And metaphor, metaphor
And language language -

Ironically
Without themselves they are something else
Or perhaps another variant of themselves
Ironically.

    Your poem has a meaning, just like that every poem should have the meaning and contradict with the facts. very nice of you. Shalon Freedman, thank you for this poem. (Report) Reply
