Life Is More Than Poetry - Poem by Shalom Freedman


Life is more than Poetry
And Poetry less than Life
And what we live and die for
More than we can write.

But Poetry has a meaning
And a Beauty of its own
And Life more a blessing
When read beyond its prose.

    What a wonderful and deeply inspiring message in a poem; all what that's there to say is said in a nutshell: as lofty as plain. (Report) Reply
