Say Not A Poet - A Pollutant - Poem by Gajanan Mishra

How dare you to say
A poet is a pollutant!

Say not please.

A poet is there
To clean you
Inside and
Also outside.

Listen to the words,
Feel the pulse,
Have patience.

A poet has
No expectation.

A poet is there
To make you happy,
To ensure peace.

Live a poetic life,
Understand the nature,
Men, my dear.
Fear not,
The poet is not there
To take away anything
From anybody.

The poet is there
To give you everything,
Everything good,
Everything beautiful.

The poet is like the sky,
The poet is like the earth,
The life of the poet is
Full of nectar.

The poet is ever green star,
With all light.

Take what you need,
Dear men.
The poet is the free
And clean air,
The poet is the pure
And cool water.
Enjoy life with poet, dear.

    However, the first couplet could have been written in different manner! It just reflects a little egoistic temperament that is not expected from a great poet! In a nutshell, this is a good poem. i rate it with a vote of 6/10 (Report)Reply

    This is an excellent poem! The poem speaks of maturity of a great poet! Understandably, you are the spine of a system; please do not cut fleshes that enhance the beauty of your existence! I will not write any more but occasionally review your poems because I have gone to the school of literature and I would love to analyze poems! (cont..) (Report)Reply

    Some poems are pollutants. You need to be less idealistic. (Report)Reply
