Poetry Is....By Roxanne #1 - Poem by Roxanne Dubarry
Poetry is beautiful church bells
chiming their joyful melodies.
Poetry is choirs singing
in perfect harmonies.
Poetry is watching
Children flying kites.
Poetry is seeing awesome
leaves falling to the ground.
Poetry is listening
to the beautiful sounds
of wind chimes.
Poetry is the happy laughter
of children at play.
Poetry is watching sailboats
gracefully sailing to Port
Poet's Notes about The Poem
Who was Cliff Bailey? He was a Republican state senator of the
39th legislative District of the State of Washington.
Many members of his own part often said he would have made a better Democratic party member; just because he was coperative with them. In honor of all of his many accomphlishements, our facility was named after him.
He is deceased. But he was a wonderful man, and when I was in the Democratic Party, we use to work together over the telephone.
Now about the peom. I have composed several versions of the same Poem,
Poetry is. However, I added an extra line when I submitted it for
publication: 'keep the story focused.' I was having problems concentrating on the poem during its composition. When I asked Nick if the line should remain in the poem, he answered, ' yes.' However,
I did choose not to include it on Poemhunter.
