Today is World Poetry Day and I dedicate this poem for all the poetry out there.
A poem can be a little thing
A two lined couplet or a three lined haiku,
A sestet and octet combine to make a sonnet
A poem is a story, a sight, a song,
That is born within you.
It’s like an enchantress,
Who spreads her magic through words
Sometimes the lines dance around
To the tap of your feet;
Symbols and images adorn the “real” world.
Happiness makes them dance to the wind
And the rains hide the outburst of tears.
Poems, be they epic or elegy,
Ode or ghazal, in rhyme or in blank verse,
What joy it brings to sing and hear them sung.
"A song is but a little thing,
And yet what joy it is to sing!"
