The Poet’s Mind


The poet’s mind, how to analyze it, the audio-visual effects,
What he sees, what hears, what he smells, what he tastes and what he feels,
What is it that hurts his heart,
And he feels impelled within to put on paper sheets,
The chits of paper,
The loose sheets
To be called poetic scribbles and given a title
Or the longer poem started with a title first.

The poet’s mind, what does it figure on its horizon,
How the range of his viewing,
The flight of imagination,
Where does it go to in the flight of imagination,
The poetic range and viewing
And his contributing pen?

Sometimes the frenzy grips it, catches it the fire of frenzy,
But you do not have the pen and paper in your hands,
Sometimes the paper and pen are
But the feeder frenzy is not
To set you on fire,
Sometimes heart-aches drip they as the love poems,
The poems of love and its sadness,
Sometimes the struggle, suffering and sacrifice of the poet
Find a way into.

The poet’s mind, I cannot, which way, will it move on,
What it thinks, what it does,
They letting it go,
But the poet taking it as for his art and its deliberation,
As for aesthetic sense,
Different from normal view-point.

The poet’s mind and heart, how to describe them,
A poet a poet, poetical,
Full of emotion, sentiment and feeling,
Sentimental, sensitive and sensuous,
Emotional and passionate.

A poet a singer, a singer of heart, a painter painting
The images of life, the world around us,
A poet a biographer, an autobiographer,
A dramatist, a narrator, a sketcher,
A folk-artiste.

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
