Hundred of poets come and go
Includes Tagore, Shakespeare, Keats and Poe.
They find inspiration in some things
they you may say no.
There are a billion stars in the sky
I believe these are the remains of
the poets who die.
Like their poems that glitter and shine
they too stay
there up there and maybe
wait for a poem of mine.
I wandered across this subject
searching for the help I need.
I still search for the great ideas
that will help me succeed.
Poetry opens my mind
clears it and sanitizes it.
Finally I wish for the poets who are in motion
surging ahead with their skill.
I think for those poets poetry is their soul.
