Some Like Poetry

Rating: 3.6
Some -
thus not all. Not even the majority of all but the minority.
Not counting schools, where one has to,
and the poets themselves,
there might be two people per thousand.

Like -
but one also likes chicken soup with noodles,
one likes compliments and the color blue,
one likes an old scarf,
one likes having the upper hand,
one likes stroking a dog.

Poetry -
but what is poetry.
Many shaky answers
have been given to this question.
But I don't know and don't know and hold on to it
like to a sustaining railing.

A poem of truth... we are all one but yet our realities and perceptions differ. We all have an answer of the meaning of Poetry but yet no two answers are alike. Here lies no right or wrong answers. A beautiful philosophical poem. Enjoyed much.

This is so true. Many people are afraid of poetry.And those of us who like it - it's hard to say exactly why. No doubt the poem comes across better still in Polish.
