'Popular Poets'?


I have noticed quite particularly
This vague thing about popularity
Checked out some 'poets' rated popular
But their poems have a most horrid grammar!

Subject and predicates in dire disagreement
Plurals and singulars in dismemberment
Wayward modifiers and lost prepositions
Writing such a gross piece of composition!

While I do not at all claim to be perfect
But for writers, basic grammar we would expect,
And chosen as one to be a popular poet,
Some skill in correctness we must not forget.

    Poetry comes out from inner soul and every poem is as much precious as a piece of diamond coming out from coal mines.. Thank you so much for sharing. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
