Google = A Good Poem - Poem by Tom Zart

A good poem paints a picture
For both your heart and brain.
It doesn't need a second chance
To make its meaning plain.

A good poem is like the flower
The lily or the rose.
God plants it in a poet's brain
And there its beauty grows.

A good poem like a cardinal
Is pregnant with song
You can’t help but hear its message
As it sings what's right or wrong.

A good poem helps us remember
What the joys of life are for
It makes us want to love someone
Till death comes knocking at our door.

    'A good poem is like the flower
    The lily or the rose.
    God plants it in a poet's brain
    And there its beauty grows.'

    wonderful, enjoyed immensely, the question of immediate comprehension and or depths is raised in the first stanza with

    'It doesn't need a second chance
    To make its meaning plain.'

    both immediacy and depths have there place, sometimes we just have to love depths :)
