POETRY MAN (by Phoebe Snow)

It’s in my head, I can’t escape it,
for within it lies my truth.
These thoughts and words become my song,
a melodic twist of poetic justice.
Every step of every day becomes
a lively dance; a prance through
the obstacles we all face. But,
in its place is a rhyme that fuels me;
it won’t refuse me when I call.
Its all in a well turned phrase.
It makes my days fly by with a glint
in my eye and emotion to express my soul.
I’m in control. I’m a Poetry Man.
I make things all right!

  1. “Its all in a well turned phrase.” Aye there lies the rub ( a dub dub ) !!
    And it be true ! You are most definitely a poetry man and I salute you, for your consistent excellence !!!!

  2. Phoebe Snow..what a talent and lost to us too soon. Yes, a poet does have the power to bestow glints of joy, smiles etc on others with just a few words. Surprised but pleased to see you here at dverse.

  3. in its place is a rhyme that fuels me;
    it won’t refuse me when I call….good to feel that rhythm within and using poetry to express our thoughts and view on life..
