The Art of Poetry

A Poem By paperpoet // 1/17/2011


Is poetry a dying art?
The very thought doth pain my heart!
Has the beauty of the rhyme
Been so lost upon our time?
Do poets no longer thrive?
And words their daily bread provide?
Are Shelleys and Byrons no longer born?
This sad idea, my soul must mourn
I pray the muse will make her glad return
To the heart that cannot beauty spurn
And if that heart beat in you or I
Poetry shall never die
