Literature, Nature, Peace, Poetry, Think About This

NAPOWRIMO 2015 ~ Day 8 ~ A Palinode ~

Day Eight: today I challenge you to write a Palinode. And what’s that? It’s a poem in which the poet retracts a statement made in an earlier poem.

so let us say
for poetry has value,it pays
I did say it does not, but I now say
It does in one or another way
let’s be poets for a while-

so let us say
poetry has value,it pays
perhaps not money but sweet
verbal sounding soothing honey
let truth and trust prevail
let’s be poets for a while-

so let us say
poetry has value,it pays
can a link joined in heaven, break ?
can the earth without His Will shake?
Let thought reveal let ideas guide
let’s be poets for a while-

Let Romantics Rise, Dreamers unite
Wordworth Iqbal Pope William excite
there need not be a cell number as
talking takes place even in slumber;
so let us with poetry abide

let’s be poets for a while-
I did say that distances beguile
But no more just step across the stile
one does feel a presence, the eye
does drop a tear, know it is just fair
when the heart sings the birds sing
Such joy and peace they bring,
they can see the smile
And carry it over on their wings
Nature’s love makes serene,
from sadness and sorrow , free-
so
let’s be poets for a while
let truth and trust prevail
