Poemhunter.Com Or Long Live Poetry

Rating: 5.0
POEMHUNTER.COM
Or
Long Live Poetry
The stereotypical pessimists said
That poetry is dead
The valedictorian
Is turned into
A valetudinarian
Which could barely count from one to two.

They proclaimed that poetry
Is in a state of agony
It is almost extinct; it is a dead language
Like Latin, and the poets of the new age
Are not as good, with so much competition
Coming from television
Computers, cell phone
I Pod, and I phone
Etcetera
Etcetera
Poetry does not stand a chance
But with the help of POEMHUNTER.COM
Hungry poets are rebuilding the kingdom
Of the world’s literature
This is great news for Mother Nature
The intelligentsia, all poem lovers
The public and the perpetual learners.

This poetry search engine
Has lessened the anxiety and the pain
Of the seasonal and the famous
Poets; this website is really generous
Since it costs nothing to register
In order to become a member
However, voluntary donation
Will be gladly accepted
By the administration.

All inspiring poets are indebted
To POEMHUNTER.COM
Where all are welcome.

I applaud the inventors of this site.

This search engine is inspiring, entertaining and out-of-sight.

Thank you for the opportunities
Consequently, our message is read in countless countries.

The pessimists were wrong
They will be forced to listen to my song
And read my poems. Just one word of caution
This site is highly instructive
And it can also be addictive.
Poetry is alive and well, long live Poetry
Thanks to the people with great vision
Many thanks to this ingenuous technology.

Hi Hebert - Poemhunters does two things: 1. It allows people of all ages and at all stages to share their poetry with us. Not only to enjoy but also to comment and score. 2. It also provides a show case for the greatest poetry of the past and present to be available for the erudition of would be poets. I have posted a poem by John Betjeman one of our Poet Laureates. You point this out in stanza three. In stanza five you commend PH for being INSTRUCTIVE and also remark that it is ADDICTIVE - that is certainly true! Because I am retired I have infinite time (168 hours per week!) and some days I spend up to four hours communiacting with the PH Family. This is both CATHARTIC and CREATIVE. Some new poems have arisen from my dialogues! Long live POEM HUNTER. Lovely poem I have scored it a MAX. Yous in poetry - JOHN.

true Little angel ...! ! ! 07 September 2009
it is really great.... you are right.... frankly it's my second site on which i share my poems but the first one the comments are exclusive for some pens as if they were the kings of poetry but they never try to take one's hand to reach their kingdom i mean they never leave comment to encourage a fresh poet..... here everyone is a king and as you said they (are rebuilding the kingdom of worlds's literature) after it has fallen down by the fake names that write poems for their selfishness.... what i like here is that we can share the holy poetc souls without arrogance and vainty..... here i found something i had been looking for for years..... i have to thank you for such true thankful words that reflect your soul and thank poemhunter.com... great job.....

Dear Herbert, Readers, Poets and Writers Your eagerness to be read is admirable to say the least. Wherever our work is printed is of less importance than content and purpose. There's not much of anything that's new or old in the universe. Especially all that has been expressed with Poetry or of other human endeavors.PoemHunter is well rewarded by all of its advertisers that are permitted to plague and distract our spontaneous writing. Nothing is ever free relating to this sort of publishing media. Had it not been for our mass participation here, why then would any company or individual services advertise here? What with all the world chaos that continues to worsen, we must set aside common phrases, innuendos and shallow inspired metaphor. What say we get busy and voice with solutions for peace, the needy above all, rescue Earth, our home and refuge. Please see how I practice what I speech. Google; Poet for peace louie levy

Well said, it's said that poetry is archaic. But I agree with you that it's not. I love classis, Spoken words, and morden poetry-just difference kinds in indifferent times. I go to many open mics and I'm blown away at their work. Thanks for the thoughtful and deserving comments to poemhunter.com. for their help in keeping poetry alive... we must help suuport their efforts.
