What is a Poem?

What is a poem?
From where does it spring?
There are sad poets, political,
romantic, humorous, sly poets,
music poets writing words of
love to be sung beneath the
balcony of ladies fair. Ballads
of battles, damsels in distress,
poems that record histories of
man’s valor and cowardice’s.

Poems are magical, chains of words
to delight, inspire, declare.
Everyone is a poet who takes the
time to see life through the eyes
of a well turned phrase, constructed
with a heart of love.
