If  I  were  a  Poet
then  riddle  me  this
When  rhyme  doesn't  show  it
and  meter's  amiss
My  words  tend  to  blow  it
but  never  like  this
If  I  were  a  Poet
why  should  I  care?
My  words  need  they  rhyme
if  nobody's  there?

If I were a poet
Your tears I would claim
And not even know your name
And that would be my claim to fame

If I were a poet
I'd be dancing with glee
Then, I could touch your hearts
With words written by me

 A soul that writes from the heart and shares it, truly gives a gift extraordinaire!

If I were a poet
I'd be able to find
poems for words in my heart
that I can't seem to rhyme.

If I were a poet
I would bare all my soul
and share with the world
for that's a true poet's goal.

If I were a poet
I'd invent a new word
to describe more then those
that you've already heard.

If I were a poet
I'd write of life's pain.
Then live some more life
and write of it again.

If I were a poet
I would wave my wand
over the world
from here to beyond

If I were a poet
all five continents
would be joined
by HUGS and sentiments

If I were a poet
I would wipe out misery
change tears to smiles
hope in place of idiocy

If I were a poet
I would do all that and more
but as I'm not
I'll dream of wings and soar


 The grape passes through the press to yield wine.
Your life must pass through the press of passion and pain to yield the wine of wisdom..

If I were a poet,
dead from years of rhyme
I'd twist out beat
bongos of boleros
and tangos
on tongues
wangful libations
to froth and roll

If I were a poet

If I were a poet
I'd write my soul in rhyme
Etch my words upon a page
So they might last thru time

If I were a poet
I write a verse of love
Send it off into the wind
To him I think most of

If I were a poet
I'd make your dreams come true
In words and lines of romance wrote
Especially for you

If I were a poet,
The passion I'd weave,
As you open your heart
And my words you conceive.

If I were a poet,
I'd be happy to say
I'm already female...

          If I were a poet
    with romantic vision to share
      I'd search a woman's heart
      and find inspiration there.

If I were a poet
as fine as there are here
then I would have responses
in number, just like Balladeer

oh my, no good.  Let's try again...

If I were a poet
I'd weave a web so well
that in it you'd find magic
as I cast my spell.

well, that is OK.  Let's see...

If I were a poet
with angelic wings to guide my step
then good things would come to you
if all my words you'd kept.

oh, bad, bad.  Humm, one more:

If I were a poet
on a magic carpet ride
I would take you all with me
and keep you by my side.

I'm working on a big one...this is just a tiny piece of it.

If I were a poet,
Id gladly bestow it
Upon anyone who was willing to listen,
For, my favorite folk lore,
And stories of yore,
Would surely make your eyes glisten.

If I were a poet;
Concreteness of words is where I'd start
Memories, and truths spoken from the heart.

If I were a poet,
Oh!  Wait!  I'm fine!
My verses all show it,
I'm like Poet deVine.

If I were a poet,
I'd have a special job to do,
To share life's inner wisdoms,
With each one of you.

 Let your heart guide you. It whispers, so listen closely.

If I were a poet
My words would be hues
Colored by my thoughts
For me to pick and choose

If I were a poet
I'd paint what I feel
'tween my heart and head
To make it all real

If I were a poet
could my verse show it?
Would my rhythm section blow it?
And would my rhyme put on a poetic show
to let the world know?

Would I be as famous as Michelangelo
best known for his paintings but a poet also.
Would I be as beautiful as Marilyn Monroe
and if she was a poet I would not know it.
How about as artistic as the French painter Picasso.
I also must mention a Hawaiian artist I know
the multi talented Mr. Walfrido.
watching him paint is like poetry in motion
he has such a creative artistic flow.
Oops, I almost forgot Wayne Gabaylo
from Hawaii 5-0.
The beautiful island of Hawaii's original spraypaint artist
with the magic paint flow.
He calls it his "Art in Motion" spray paint show.
I confess a lack of famous poets listed here,
Oh, now I remember one, A man named William Shakespeare
This English poet and dramatist
was famous I hear.

Go ahead and add to my list if you feel you must.
Create a beautiful family poetry tree
full of those who are known to create artistically.
Paint some creative pictures with your imaginative words,
Place all your beautiful thoughts here on display.
For we are all poets each one in our own wonderfully gifted way.
