Read introduction

My small 'Thank You' to all Poets.

Upon the Importance of Reading Poetry. (188)

Dsc02480by Michelle Seyner07 Jul 2014

I read at least a book a week
and absorb the knowledge that I seek

but my favourite thing to read, you see
will always remain poetry:

pure perfection, so concise
so poetic, so precise -

voices of Poets, new and old
their stories in rhyme or verse are told

their poetry caught in an inked cage
for me to read on a book's page

and though it singes, hurts or stings
it is what gives my soul its wings.

Long may I yet read poetry,
for 't makes a better me of me!
