I’m a poet

 

I’m a poet and you should know it.

I’ll put the whole world into words.

Words with rhyme and rhythm and song.

Meanings that twist and convolute along.

 

 

‘Abstract words’ to get your brain 'a ticking.'

‘Sentimental words’ to get your heart 'a thumping.'

‘Clever words’ to get your intellect 'a wondering.'

 

I speak of love, of love and a-more love.

I speak of mysterious worlds above.

I even speak about that which can’t be spoken of,

until my heart is exhausted and broken.

 

  

Yes, I’m a poet and you should know it.
