O Express... Poem by Dominic Windram

O Express...



O express the flesh and spirit of poetry;
In flowing lines of metaphor and simile.
Punctuate it with splendid alliteration.
Let it breathe with soft assonance; and look upon
It as adding vibrant colour to Creation.
O complete what the spellbinding gods have begun!
Structure every essential word bone and highlight
Every pertinent syllable to keep things tight;
But allow for imagination's feral light.
Deploy all your senses; from sound and taste to sight.
Be a world - shaker; fiery prophet; dream weaver!
Make your poem enjoyable for curious readers.
Accentuate its music and its meaning.
Emphasise its grand themes, but make sure that it sings!
