A Poet's Art - Poem by Jonathan Goldman a.k.a JGthepoet
Never let it be said by some,
Nor let it be said by anyone,
That a Poet's Art is not the same.
As a Writer of Prose, or a Painter when
They describe to you the scenes they've seen,
Or depicted what might have been.
The Poet creates Verses in Rhyme and Scan,
The Writer describes scenes as best he can,
To be read by most, but heard by some,
Who cannot see, but at least can hear,
Hoping the words are pleasing to the ear.
Vocabulary reigns supreme,
In the Writer and the Poet's theme,
When they do write for you to know,
When their words run fast, or sometimes slow.
What is the reason for their style of words?
Why do their Rhymes often re-occur?
Their poems flow from start to end,
With adjustments here and corrections there.
