Verses For The Poets - Poem by Etudaye Musa Abdulazeez

Great and Great are they
And in them, lies the embodiment of wisdom.
They chance never the pen and thinking day by day.
Granting for great words of wisdom; a freedom.

Nights upon Nights
They burn candles.
Relentlessly, like one that for right, everyday fights.
They wrap up sweet words; bundles upon bundles.

By them are those words-Juicy and Sugary!
By them are those lines the mouth sounds sweetly.
By them are those Lines of Rhyme
Use by a lover to tame his mate to smile in mime.

By just words,
Breed can they hopeless to hope.
Isn't it for the exchange of such gleaming words
That powered and sweetened Elizabeth and Browning to elope!

These same words can summon upon all the strength lost,
When sang to the hearing of the weak.
The same sounds can call upon the health lost,
When whispered to the hearing of the sick.

The yelling babies to such words
Will own no volition, but to sleep to the sweetness.
Oh! What a might possessed the politicians, yet only by such words
Can they seek and gain of masses-votes and kindness.

Their words can war the war and please the peace to flow.
For in tranquillity, how the light glows, air blows and streams flow;
As against the fire, the wind and the tides of a river,
How they move and wave in a no slow anger.

With this, in witness I can bear.
In 'Shall I Compare Thee to A Summer's Day'
As he immortalizes his beauteous words; the Great Shakespeare.
Which the eyes see and the mouth say still today.

So, such will be these verses of praise upon the Poets.
As men would love to hear and sing praises upon the Poets.

As there lies a love by the Poets
And the not Poets
In the praises laid upon the Poets,
There then must be NON like the Poets.
