The ups and downs of a poet

A poet is quite an ordinary human being
Whatever he writes may not be a great saying
You may read it for the time being
And even question the timing but enjoy its rhyming

A poet has many ups and downs
Sometimes she unnecessarily frowns
Her creations are not always the greatest crowns
There may be some laughing clowns

In the poetic garden, all are not beautiful roses
There may be some ugly wild flowers
Some flowers may not have any seeds
Just like some poems have no reads

But the poet’s greatest duty is continually to write
It may be utterly wrong or absolutely right
Like a soaring rocket it may reach the greatest height
Or it may fall flat like a broken kite

Poem of the Day

poet James Whitcomb Riley

When the frost is on the punkin and the fodder's in the shock
And you hear the kyouck and gobble of the struttin' turkey cock
And the clackin' of the guineys, and the cluckin' of the hens
