What Is A Poem

Rating: 5.0


A poem is a way to say
just what's on your mind today
a way to put your thoughts in verse
that doesn't cut into your purse.

It's a simple little rhyming scheme
that lovers often use to dream
or other much more silly folk
will use to try to tell a joke.

A poem can be many things
A song, a prayer, or words to sing
But the very best poems I find
Are ones that stimulate your mind.

Almost anyone can be a poet
Most of us just do not know it
All it takes is a verse or two
and the talent that God gives to you.

If your efforts meet success
Thank God and share your happiness
For poems are made by fools like me
But only God makes poetry.
