Rating: 4.5


who reads the poet
who reads the bard
who reads the verse

I have known few poets
read by their wife husband
read by their close partners

I have known few poets
read by any circle friends
unless friends are poets

No hype. It's the true picture of what's happening in the community of poets. But isn't it an advantage that they still have a forum where they can express themselves. Thanks a lot.

You are correct, many people read poetry from books and other sites, people look up famous poets and poets on this site also, a few comment; but mainly active poets comment on this site, some write more, some comment more. The poem address what seems obvious, poets not wives, husbands, relatives, or friends comment the most. This is normal, we have the interest in poetry, normally they do not.
