Does Poetry More Fulfill Your Mind

Rating: 5.0
If in thy youth were made to find
poetry more fulfilled your mind
than machinations or the rest
consider your soul doubly blest.
So let us not speak ill of verse
recite each line, rehearse, rehearse!
Do words flow smooth like in a dream
or struggle hard to swim upstream?
When writing do poems seem to drown
when reading tumble to the ground;
just rhyme these two words, light and bright,

2) the ocean blue, the forest green but, if sensitivities lack, it's okay to compose in black. Loveliest end rhymes in thy poetry, Captain Sir!

1) I recite the beautiful core of thy poetry, Captain Cur: When writing do poems seem to drown when reading tumble to the ground; just rhyme these two words, light and bright, and everything will be alright. The finer themes that lift the scene

I had to look up anapest, and I might try to use that sometime. It's a tricky thing isn't it, achieving a smooth flow of words which also make sense. This poem makes perfect sense and flows well too.

Just discovered your work, and it looks like good, frolicking fun to read! What better sailing than on the high seas of sound and rhythm ~ an infinite reach! Whenever I come into a patch of bad weather, I always repeat to myself the phrase, 'lighter and brighter is the way.' I've always found it soothing, implying that 'this too shall pass.' I was pleasantly surprised to see a similar line appearing in these verses. Well done on a very enjoyable poem! :)

Just having a little fun with words, when I'm not pirating of course.
