  • Who Does Not Love True Poetry

    Who does not love true poetry,
    He lacks a bosom friend
    To walk with him
    And talk with him,
    And all his steps attend.

    Who does not love true poetry---
    Its rhythmic throb and swing
    The treat of it
    The sweet of it,
    Along the paths of Spring:

    Its joyous lilting melody
    In every passing breeze,
    The deep of it,
    The sweep of it,
    Through hours of toil or ease:

    Its grandeur and sublimity---
    Its majesty and might---
    The feel of it,
    The peal of it,
    Through all the loney night:

    Its tenderness and soothing touch;
    Like balm on evening air,
    That feelingly
    And healingly
    Cures all the hurts and care:

    Who does not love true poetry
    Of sea and sky and sod---
    The height of it
    The might of it--
    He has not known his God.

      Tis easy to enjoy poetry when on a scroll.
      It's when the poets feel the need to put it to word that it gets ugly.
      "If his unpleasant wounding has in some way enlightened the rest of you to the grim finish under the glossy veneer of criminal life, and inspired you to change your ways, then his injuries carry with it an inherent nobility, and a supreme glory; we should all be so fortunate. You say poor Toby, I say poor us." --Gone in Sixty Seconds

      No one ever leaves, all they do is sit on the forums and piss and moan about how bad everything is. --Aziel

        Perhaps those who can not write it do not love true poetry.

        Perhaps those who can not hear what their heart says do not love true poetry.

        There are those who do not love true poetry. Though I must disagree with some of your presumptions about such people.
