POEMS OF SPIRIT AND ACTION

"Poems of Spirit and Action"
was the poetry book that lit
the passion in my heart and soul
for this kind of English Lit.

The teacher chose the poems
that we'd learn line by line,
we'd recite them in the classroom
and feel the joy of rhyme.

But rhyme is under threat
as many "poets" prefer
to scribble words at random
that sometimes make me grrrr.

I am not always a rhymer
but that's the way I lean,
I say what I want to say,
then leave the ending clean.

Poetry comes in many shapes,
in many forms and sizes,
poets too are varied folks
with horrors and surprises.


"Poems of Spirit and Action"
is my reference point in Lit,
the rhythm, rhyme and energy,
I can't get enough of it.
