Poet Of Highest Order

Poet Of Highest Order

Oh!

Lovely poet of the highest order

You
who do employ rhyme schemes and order

You
made us men our minds your paper

And
your words in us spirits that shower

You
laid your thoughts as our inks in our hearts

And
by your first utterance taught us these arts

And
governed our pens in making word charts

Smooth
as silence and piercing as darts

Oh!
Beautiful poet of the first order

You
who have made us one, sister, brother

You
who are the indescribable definition of wonder

And
gives us these awed inspiration running yonder

    1. Okwy thanx again for ur lovely comments…i was really angry when i wrote this one morning.

  2. Good poem. I love the rhyming.
    Seems you’re unsure of yourself, u got to focuse more on the diction and meaning, not only the rhyming.
    Good poem though.

    1. thanx lactoo, praise be to God who inspires us to pen down lines for our generations

  3. lactoo..i strongly disagree with you. the poem rocks, and the diction,, on point!

    1. thanx smartfinger for ur comment and courage.

  4. @Smartfingers and @ Lactoo what is the argument?

    Piece is OK, bur there are some sticking points for me though.

    “You
    laid your thoughts as our inks in our hearts”

    “You
    made us men our minds your paper”

    These two lines for me are shaky.

    “You
    made us men and our minds your paper” – breaks the two themes and makes them stand equally I fink.

    “You
    laid your thoughts as inks for our hearts” or
    “you laid your thoughts to serve as inks for our hearts” same thing but more compact I fink.

    Nice work.

    1. shai thanx to u too, i guess i would never knw if u didn’t tell me. i will remember next time too.

  5. The poem indeed rocks!
