The Purpose Of A Poet - Poem by Penny Johnson

When a poet writes about under-
standing, happiness and joy,
It is an art because it comes
from the poet's heart
But
When a poet writes about love
It comes straight down from
God, up above
Listen now, if you don't
already know it
God speaks softly through
the poet

Awesome
Silence
Stillness
Coolness
SUDDENLY
Quickly
quickly
gently
falling
falling
rising
rising
glistening
shimmering
beautiful
SNOW
