Why Poet


Poets see what others don't,
Poets say what others won't,
Poets live in other Worlds,
Made of sadness and of words,
Poet's life, Intensity,
Poets want, what cannot be.

    Good poem but remember poets see the funny side as well as the darkness. A well written poem as good a description of why we write. Thanks for sharing BB : O) (Report) Reply

    I know I've been an idealist for a very long time, and am a poet at heart,
    a romantic. Most see only this little bit, only care about this little bit in
    their bubble, where true poets, and others, see too much, care too much,
    and it's a heavy weight to carry. a very complete little poem, like very
    much, take care, Lyn (Report) Reply

    It is that forever need to understand, be that which they can't.
    Indeed in a dream is the life of a poet.
    Thanks for sharing such a wonderful poem. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
