This thing we call poetry
Sheds light on the dark places in life
Like a lamp in the darkest of night
Soothes souls to the cores
And eases emotions
While expressing the I in me
Or the I in individuality

This thing we call poetry
Is flowers opening in the spring
Spreading color and fragrance all around
Making life appear to be as perfect as a picture

This thing we call poetry
Sounds like your favorite song playing on the radio
Bringing back those memories of a long ago
Or a bird chirping in the crispness of the morning air
As it hunts for worms to devour

This thing we call poetry
Gives way to fears, frustrations, depressions and the like
In order to create joy, excitement
and a peace that chaos does not understand

This thing we call poetry
Guides us through uncharted territory
Like Lewis and Clark on an expedition
And it feels like a good cup of hot chocolate on the coldest winter?s day

This thing we call poetry
Takes that which is straight
And gives it curves
That add flavor to all there is

This thing we call poetry
Oh, long may its banner wave
