The Poet - Poem by william Konrad

Poets write of death and love
Of hell below and heaven above
Nothing escapes the poets pen
Not robin, sparrow, hawk nor wren.

His subject for a poem might be
Of birth, growing up, or puberty
His arsenal of things to write
An endless source of sheer delight

What moves one to word and pen?
A longing for what might have been?
A clearer look at days gone by?
Rethinking life and wondering why?
