Young Poets Poem by Nicanor Parra

Young Poets

Rating: 3.8

Write as you will
In whatever style you like
Too much blood has run under the bridge
To go on believing
That only one road is right.

In poetry everything is permitted.

With only this condition of course,
You have to improve the blank page.

(trans. by Miller Williams)

Poetry is like a puzzle only with limitless pieces of words at hand. Find a correct fit and poem will flow. Bigger the reservoir of words bigger a scoop for a writer. Emotions top but skill and mastery of language does matter and for that reason matters the hard work of learning.

You have said it all. Young poets (poets remain young till the very end) are explorers of new galaxies every moment. Small but significant comment on the role of a poet.
