Poetic WisdombyJack Gates©
By Jack Gates
With note-paper out and pencil excitedly poised,
I have been writing poetry since I was a little kid.
Any subject will set me off, sometimes I'm surprised,
my penned down thoughts, like dreams, are so vivid.
Few people have had the chance to read my verse and prose,
those who have, I know have laughed and sometimes cried.
Because, poetry is really my private thoughts and woes,
so welcome to my heart, my soul, join me, at my side.
Good! Now that you're here guiding my poetic bent,
judging each single line, weeding out the lies,
Perhaps you will share with me that illusive moment,
that at long last, you will help me to be poetically wise.
