Poetry, a subtle kind of passion by Michael Healy

A reply to Faymarie’s feelings about poetry. How do you feel?

Poetry, a subtle kind of passion

Poetry is a subtle kind of passion

That can lift the soul in a glorious fashion

Select your words with great care

So they flow and fit in a way that is rare.

You hope your thoughts will coalesce

So your audience feel that they are blessed

If only one person sees your meaning

Like a baby that is weaning

And it fills them with a passion

So just one of your poems is too small a ration.

Link your words till they raise a smile,

Do it more so it lasts for a while

After all, as you will know

A good poet’s art can make your passion glow.
