Villanelle: There Are More Poets Than There Are Poems


There are more poets than there are poems
Eveybody writes with some poets’ tongue
Do duckweed and mugwort breed well in loams

If only those who teach could write poems
The world will be spared many gasps in lung
There are more poets than there are poems

And there’d be less of those who push poems
And even less of those who parse the tongue
Do duckweed and mugwort breed well in loams

Who says this be damned ever in dungeons
Let billions rant and rage in their own tongue
There are more poets than there are poems

Words mean what they seem beyond their poems
To hell with those who demean words with dung
Do duckweed and mugwort breed well in loams

Every human has a right to write poems
As every bird empties its sing-song lung
There are more poets than there are poems
Do duckweed and mugwort breed well in loams

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
