Poetry. - Poem by Dipankar Sadhukhan

Poetry is neither a basilica
Nor a story of a happy family.
Poetry is the romantic tale
Of our love and languishment.

Poetry means just few words
Which easily touch our heart.
Poetry is not a miracle,
But the way to get relieved of agony and pain.

Poetry neither teaches us any ethics.
Nor sketches the exact picture of life.
Poetry is the world of imagination
Which is created only by a poet's mind.

Poetry means just few meaningful words -
'The spontaneous overflow of powerful feelings'.
Poetry is nothing but the synthesis
Of imagination, collocation and rhythm.

    This poem evokes poetic feelings. Poetry has a wide ambit that includes didactic poems. THis has been a tradition fron the earliest times.
