A Poem about Poetry

Poetry sings with joy
And it dances with sorrow
Expresses what is in our hearts
Each day and tomorrow

Poetry blends our feelings
Gently in our mind
Expressing thoughts as things
Giving meaning to all we find

Poetry is ours each day
If it recognizes the moment
Lifting up our gratitude
Giving relief in our torment

Poetry plays with words
Twisting rhymes and rhythms
Until the magic just appears
Bringing forth as words given

Poetry laughs just right
Captured hearts rejoice
When words together
Become our common voice

Poetry blooms and sometimes dies
Beauty in morning when it’s given
Glory in hearts when it flies
Eloquent in its vision

Poetry holds gratitude love and joy
Mourning sometimes best expressed
When memories needed telling
Thus poetry bringing souls to rest
