A Poet Is A Poet

Robert frost
Edgar Allan Poe
a poet
is a poet
and you know it

words
of wisdom
they can be spoken
tears
can be she'd
and
hearts
can be broken
a poet
is a poet
and you
know it

don't try
to deny
fish can swim
birds can fly
clouds come heavy
and they
dark the sky
a poet
is a poet
and you know it
a trumpet
ain't got no sound
unless you
blow it
a poet
is a poet
and
you know it

    Thats true. Its one of the most misunderstood art forms. When someone has a few words to paint a picture they become a poet. Whether you have understood the point of view is not the poets problem. He has done his poem. That reminds me about my poem " Poeting" ......." A hoodlum throwing stones
    Is not eating scones"
