I Like To Read The Verse Poem by Bryan Norton

I Like To Read The Verse

Rating: 5.0

I like to read the verse of song
When such is very good
The very best of poetry
Is clear and understood

When songs are very beautiful
Like many songs of choice
Somebody wrote the melody
That gives the words a voice

Not every poem is musical
Nor fit for composition
So many poems that people write
Are not in that tradition

But when I read my favorite things
And cherish every word
I know the sound of music makes
The way they should be heard

Now many songs are really bad
Or just not good enough
But even those which drive you mad
Are diamonds in the rough

The poet has a role to play
In songs that really shine
The musicals that people love
Will make you stand in line

So many songs of years ago
Are played in shows today
The modern ones that people hear
Are seldom used that way

I like to read the verse of song
And even sing the tune
The poet is the one who brings
The magic to the moon!
