Poems Vs Songs - Poem by Slava Olchevski

I may be right or I may be wrong
But, when you hear a singer singing a song
It is his or her voice that carries a message
With music providing an easier passage
To a space behind the eardrums
Resulting often in a rhythmical shaking
Of hips and boobs and flailing of arms

I may be wrong or I may be right
When you read a good poem it brings you delight
The rhyming of words makes poem tick
Your imagination does the trick
The poem's message illuminates the mind
Translating human language into language divine

When I'm writing my poetry, whether poem or song
The former always comes right and the latter wrong.

    poets are basically writers of poems.song-writing is not as arduous as composing poems. And making a song out of a good poem is the toughest task of all!
    with warm regards,
