Refreshments: Spring Poetry 2
You try it:
Accept a pattern of syllables and sounds, or
Discover the organic form in the words you want, or
Articulate your ideas without yet words.
Think it’s hard? You try it.
Then come and make poetry happen.
Today’s the big day! At noon,
On our porch, under the spreading oaks.
Ears and mouths, hearts and minds, the Word makes poetry.
Today is even Shakespeare’s doubleday, death and
Birth, as in all poetry, world without end.
