Poetry, All About Poetry

Narrative poetry
And the poet a narrator in verse,
Lyrical poetry
And the poet a singer of the heart,
Metaphysical poetry
And the poet as a metaphysician,
Satiric poetry
And the poet as a satirist,
Romantic poetry
And the poet as a romantic,
Victorian poetry
And the poet as a Victorian,
Modern poetry
And the poet as a modern man,
Ultra-modern, post-modern and modernist.

The poet as a classicist
And poetry as classicism,
An exercise in morality and didacticism,
The poet as a thinker
And poetry as dispersed meditations,
An exercise in maxims, proverbs and sayings,
The poet as a musician
A maker of music,
The poet as singer
Singing the songs of life,
The poet as a painter
Painting the images of life,
The poet as a photographer
As for the album and his collection.

The poet as a landscapist
Landscaping the domains,
Hills, dales and vales,
The poet as an imagist
Taking refuge in imagery and imagism
And word-plays,
The poet verbose and wordy
Using bombastic words,
Old, dead and archaic,
Latinized and patched up,
The poet as an urban fellow
Dealing with urban life and culture,
The poet dealing country life and manners
Countrified and pastoral,
The poet after marking tornadoes and floods
Turning eco-centric,
Voicing the concerns for ecology and environment.

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
