Poets are all heart all soul
Their words express feeling
Of our world, how it works, its dealing
Of how we have lost control
Poets feel the words they transcribe,
The darkness of unrequited feeling.
The joys of truelove that have us reeling.
Words to stop a war, a full on bribe!
As a poet I feel all my words
They’re part of me exposed
Feelings of peace I do propose
Goodwill too for oncoming years.
Not odes, but all enclosed rhymes.
Celebrating poets their feelings.
Oft of their lives, their dealings,
History, and hope for future times.
