Best Poem of David Grieve

What Is It?

It comes as a strong fire
which warms and enlightens
and urges inner hearing
out into uttered word.

Once expressed,
what has been
the poet’s meaning
is no longer his own.
It becomes different sounds
to others’ ears,
and their eyes
may receive
deeper, further, other light.

What then is poetry?
“Poems come out of wonder,
not out of knowing”.
Some thing sparks and arcs
and connections are made.
