~Accolades Of Poets~

Words describe the emotions,
inspiration grants them rhyme.
Poets offer prose...
shared wisdom of all time.

Blessed with the gift of expression,
changing emotions into lyric and verse.
Searching deep inside their souls-
hearing voices, those moments when angels converse.

Like symphonies of heartstrings...
turning words into the beauty of song.
Like an artist painting images,
their vision of life's reasons ... teach us to be strong.

Their words touch and heal, allowing us to dream,
we embrace and applaud them, grateful for their grace.
We honor and award them for many years to come,
Poets of words and wisdom-held classic-in their rightful place.

Janet Marie 1/22/00  >>>

written with respect and gratitude to all the gifted artists who turn emotions and words into treasures of poetry, song, and books. To the poets, songwriters, musicians, authors, and anyone who shares their talents with us.
The ones who we revere and cherish thru decades and to the new ones still to be discovered.

* inspired after my first visit here.

Hi guys,
I forgot to ask when I posted this poem earlier today...If anyone would care to offer their critique of this, I would love the suggestions...
since its like a tribute piece... I'd like it to be more polished...I was wondering about the last 4 lines-- they didnt seem to flow like the rest of the poem. This is a different type of poem for me I usually write about more personal feelings or experiences. So feel free to offer me your words of wisdom.  
Thanks to Echo for your kind words.

This is beautiful, Janet! I won't be of any help in the critiquing department but you can post it in the Critical Analysis Forum if you would like some constructive help with the poem.  I just know that I loved it!

....sorry that I couldn't help!
