'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.

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
