They Say….


They say poetry is a fashion
But I say it is a deep passion

They say poetry is jumbled
But I say it is purely humbled

They say poetry is waste of time
But I say it is a sweet rhyme

They say poetry is crop of craze
But I say it is a hidden blaze

They say poetry is heap of stones
But I say it is a leap into unknowns

They say poetry is thoughtless act
But I say it is a self made pact

They say poetry is work of idlers
But I say it is a pilgrimage of thinkers

They say poetry is flight without wings
But I say it is a bird that sings

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
