A Poet Who Needs Poetry More Than It Needs Him - Poem by Shalom Freedman

A POET WHO NEEDS POETRY FAR MORE THAN POETRY NEEDS HIM

A poet who needs Poetry far more than it needs him
May still be a poet
A small poet
An unimportant poet
But still somewhere somehow
A soul that sings itself to a few
Words of meaning
And concise occasional beauty.
