The Poets

We who put the pen to paper

writing rhyme and prose

are searching for a way to ponder

all the world’s great loves and woes.

**********

And some have called us visionaries

for the things we say.

but every human heart has spoken

what we put in words today!

**********

What I feel and see and do

are what they are ~ they’re mine

and yet the need to write them

makes them open to all kinds. . .

**********

Thee ones who call them stupid,

the ones who say they’re wrong,

yes, even those who think

they’d make good rhythms for a song.

**********

A writer has no power

but the power she accepts,

for her words are but expressions

of the thoughts her soul begets.
