The Good Lord Watches Over Poets And Fools - Poem by Mary Ryan

The good Lord watches over poets and fools
Not exactly one of life’s little rules
Now which one do I happen to be?
Give me a minute and you shall see
I know it’s not cool
To be called a fool
Although I consider myself a poet
There are many who don’t know it
You might consider me a foolish poet
I know this poem is silly but I wrote it
I’m having fun with this little rhyme
Although some may say I’m wasting my time
My poetic license seems to have expired
Cause this isn’t exactly what I desired
But playing with words is such great fun
And knowing they’ll often touch someone

    MARY...IF A POET CAN'T CAN''T EMBRACE FOLLY, HUMOR, OR JUST FOLLOWING ONESLF ON AN UNEXPECTED TRAIL OF THOUGHT, THEN
    THE MAGNIFICENCE OF 'SILENT EXPRESSION' COULD NOT EXPLORE
    IT'S FULL-RANGE SPECTRUM & TAP NEW INFANTCIES OF LITERATURE.
    POETRY, AS ALL FORMS OF FREE-STYLE, CRATIVE VERSE, IS ALWAYS
    WITHIN THE WRITERS CONTROL.YOUR WORK...YOUR STYLE...YOUR PASSION FOR IT...THAT'S ALL THAT COUNTS IN THE END.
    YOUR PIECE WAS ENJOYABLE TO READ...GO WITH IT & ENJOY!
