Poets And Poems


Poetry blossomed long before Shakespeare, Milton or Poe.
It thrived prior to Solomon and the languages of old.
Poetry today offers itself more often in the form of music
Then in sonnets and poems as the legends of life unfold.

Man has his fear of loneliness, death and the hereafter
As authors compose his doom, desperation and glory.
All hear the words of both good and evil
With too many that fall for the wrong story.

The falsehoods of life find it hard to hide
From the word of Godís poets and poems.
Sharing their joy, frustration and sorrow
By voice, Internet, radio, or books, in our homes.

Poets and poems help man become more human
As the storms of life proliferate their toll.
Poets and poems were put here for a reason
To help tame the savage that dwells in our soul.

"All hear the words of both of good and evil

Sadly I feel this captures our current state of affairs all too well. Another wonderfully composed and true, piece of work.
Thank you.

I enjoyed well the very first line, Tom.

I think this will be well what might happen
as we may fall into a zone of non-retrieval, if
indeed that happens...

the poets might well be the last to stand, speaking to all what might
have been accomplished.

For the fighters will have fought;
and the losers may will lose.

But not in my zone.

Because this poet will take a full position
to keep us as we are and unto better times;
and untimately make us better than we were.

Poets come in all shapes, sizes, and masques.

You really never want to scratch the masque...

Well done.

    POETS AND POEMS: The falsehoods of life find it hard to hide, From the word of God's poets and poems, Sharing their joy frustration and sorrow, By voice, internet, radio, books or in the homes. Although I find this poem in its entirety fine. That 3rd verse, it moves me. Good job, Tom.
