The Mind Of A Poet - Poem by Edward Kofi Louis

If horses could fly,
I could have been the first person in heaven;
But, here i am today as a bard.
If roses could smile,
I could have love all the women in the world;
But, here i am today as a teacher.
If donkeys could teach,
I could have been the first Professor on earth;
But, here i am today with my mind.

Cure, pure, sure, endure, lure!
All that muses teaches the world,
All that is lively makes me glad;
But, this is the mind of a poet unknown.

I am sitting next to you and,
I am seeing what you do;
Like the love of poetry.
I am the eye to many!
I am the mind of many!
For, the love of a muse is what i bring to you;
But, this is the mind of a poet unknown.

The love of poetry,
The love of a muse;
The mind of a poet to the world so sweet!
But, if horses could fly,
I could have been the first person in heaven.

    All that is lively makes me glad;
    But, this is the mind of a poet unknown.....love is the only reason that we write poetry. we all want to spread love and goodness.........and make this world a better place. thank u dear poet. tony
