The Weeping Poet


No one knows why the poet cry
How could they
The world has never seen a bird cry
Poets cry anyway
Long stream; high tides
The tears of a poet forms a line
In every stanza a nightingale delivers

The tears of a poet is a liquid rhyme
They flow freely with Iambic meter
Like sonnet in the theatre;
Like good in a channel of plenty

A poet is a prophet of art
Art is nature
The tears of a poet is a mass of intellectual vapour
Floating on his mind

The price of a poet is service
His pride; humility, his tears; respect
For poetry is service, humility, respect

    Relatable, and the overall poem is great. I don't see the reason for the Roman numerals though. (Report) Reply

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
