What Does Poetry Mean To Me - Poem by Ron Burn

What does poetry mean to me
What do I get from a poem
Good poetry is a rhapsody
That makes my spirit roam

What does poetry mean to me
What do I get from an ode
Good poetry is the world to me
It is the mother lode

What does poetry mean to me
What do I get from a verse
Good poetry makes my soul soar free
And lifts the darkest curse

What does poetry mean to me
A sorry sonofabitch
Good poetry grabs me by the balls
And makes my life seem rich

What does poetry mean to me
An ageing U3Aer
Good poetry takes me back to youth
To when I was a player

What does poetry mean to me
A frustrated would-be bard
Good poetry trips not off my pen
It’s far too blooming hard
