Poetry is not a poet's tool
To separate the wisest from the fool
Nor, is it that a poem is complete
Unless the words and rhyming are replete
Complexity may satisfy the authors
The reader only wonders why he bothers
To paint a scene or world in only words
To whisk away the heart on wings of birds
This is the task and challenge of the poet
So sad there are so few that truly know it
