This is a rewrite.

          The poets poem

Each poet writes between the bind.
Their innuendos for our mind.
They launch them with a tender flair,
With phantom strings that hold them there.

Amongst the flowers of their poem,
Are secret fears that will not comb.
Hidden under shadowed sheath,
Secluded in a secret wreath.

They drain their souls in self embroil,
Weary themselves in sweat and toil.
Hide each gem in self deny,
With colors of a butterfly.

Then hold their breath for one to read,
The vail of message they have seed,
Amongst the offer of their tea.
And pray to God in true you see.

So if you read a poets poem,
Search carefully what they has sown.

I'm sure I remember this, Sy.
Marvellous - draining the soul indeed. I wonder where I dredge my words from sometimes!
And I also wonder - would we be true poets without ears to hear our songs?

(And I have searched carefully and seen one little has that should be a have... *twinkle*)

Seymour: Sometimes, your honesty with words gets inside of me and I think you know when I talk, exactly what I mean...

HUGS Poet!

Sy,
Whatever seed that you have sown
Is many times to me unknown
For I am usually swept, you see
By the beauty of your poetry
And fail to realize or find
A meaning of which I'm total blind
So I'll continue as such reading your poetry
And hope that God decifers for me
This poem is beautiful
As is all of your work
Liz

A sigh for Sy.

 In the dew of little things,
the heart finds its morning
and is refreshed.

To all the wonderful people above, my machine is so slow it would take me all day
to answer each of you so I'll say a huge thank you and love you all. SY
