Poetry Is Language Squared - Poem by Richard Lackman

What is it about poetry that I find so appealing
Perhaps it is the storyline that I find so revealing
Maybe it is the rhythm and the cadence so freewheeling
Or simply how the rhyme leaves me with such a happy feeling

I must admit that I enjoy the sound when lines are paired
Or when the poem's content shows how much the poet dared
In fact it's true that poems to our best prose are compared
So with beauty and a story poetry is language squared

    Reading a poem is a bit like reading the last paragraph of a novel- very satisfying.
    Delightful poem.
