'A Poet Is' - Poem by Sallie Marie Tompkins
A poet is in love with words.
They make the birds sing,
and fly with the doves.
They wash away pain with a pen,
that is gentle, yet peaceful like rain.
Your soul shakes at the vibration of the expression of art.
A poet is the definition of what an artist should be.
Each one has it's own skill.
A poet is silky cloth for hurting tears,
relieving fears of agony for some lost child.
A poet is relief for someone in grief.
