How Unlucky The Poets Are...! - Poem by Sylva Portoian

How unlucky the poets…are
They don't know
How unlucky they are…!

They tear their Harts*
In many ways
To write only few stanzas

Most they who read
Might give little praise-

And some have geniusness
Are able to read with many sights

Appreciating cavernously
Inspiring each Poetic Painful...

Yet, Painlessness
With tears
With grace…!

* Hart; Heart- without 'e' based on anatomical structure of the heart...
Because it has four chambers with four valves...
As well as grammatically...Why we say Hand...Hard and we can't say Hart...
English is a hybrid language as my professor Tim Cullinan of Cambridge
use to say often...!
So my poems are based on 'Hart' and not Heart since my First Poetry Collection
' Lance my Hart at a Glance' dedicated to My Heart Surgeon (HS)

    Yet, Painlessness
    With tears
    With grace…! oh the poet by stint of time!
    world feels happy by their graces
    from dark shadow their tears fall
    for world to respire to filter into joy...quite ingenious write10++++, thanks for sharing

    This is a wonderful poem.
    I think that we give everything to put our most deeply felt feelings into stanzas
    We put it out for the world to read.
    Yet how many read? How many get truly inspired? How many get through to what we felt in our harts when we wrote?
    Generally I know that very few people read my poems. But the few comments are sometimes encouraging. Even if only some of my poems will have inspired very few people, we will have written not in vain. I was writing poetry in first instance for my two children, but none of them shows any interest even in reading my poems.
    Anyhow I still feel so lucky to be able to write poetry, Sylva. It gives me a strange kind of satisifaction to put my ideas out in the open. I purposely put no copyright on them. If i find my poems on a website here or there, it makes me wildly happy.
    Wow your poem really provoked a lot of thoughts in me. Well done.

    True were are often ignored but write first for ourselves this is our craft or sullen art as Dylan Thomas once wrote. (Report) Reply

    Very true indeed.The theme of your poem and the explanation of the spelling of heart as well are interesting! (Report) Reply

    I agree, english spelling is often ridiculous and needs revision.
    Nice poem.

    the hart explanation is welcome and makes some sense considering yer brush with cardiology

    its also near to the word that resides within....hurt

    nice lines
