Where is the Poet’s Measuring Stick

Where is the Poet’s Measuring Stick

By David Smith July 12, 2009



Keep adding to the blog as opinions flow,

Write poetry of love and circumstances that glow.


Write of passion and pain; and history and song.

And life’s value as impulse is strong.


Keep adding to the blog; and my audience drops.

The people, the world, a need to entertain a lot.


O what a purpose and sharing is grand

Comments are important. Through communication we understand.


That is the goal; write emotions that sting.

That feels with the heart and everything.


To bond us together with the rainbow of care.

Caressing the heart; a thought to share.


Scanning the blog; how it affects the readers’ heart

A joy when the author does his part.
