To Write a Poem by Michael Healy


To Write a Poem by Michael Healy

Is there a magic to writing a poem, or what is the way?

How do you set to write a poem,

I have often wondered?

 

Well, you could start with the title.

But, no, the theme should come first,

I suggest that is really vital.

Then note what you may want to say,

But how are you to do it?

 

I like my poems to have a rhyme,

Though that is not essential

But poems without a rhyme, can be detrimental

For the message to your reader

May be confused and even weaker.

 

Some poets have a magic touch

Whose work is really captive

Their poems conjure in the mind

More than simple words may find

And so their effect is just sublime.

 

So when you have some free time

Get pen and paper and write a line

Choose your subject and have a go                                      

To write a poem; you never know,

You just might be……. another Edgar Allan Poe
