Poets Are Made of Many Things

written by: Gayl Wright



What makes a poet?

Hugs and kisses
Music and prayer
Happiness and joy

Magic and majesty
Hearts and circles
Squares and triangles

Green grass and flowers
Children and animals
Walking and running

Porch swings and wind chimes
Hens and lizards, cats and dogs
Clouds, trees and sunshine

Conversations and tea time
Laughing and crying
Listening and speaking

Thinking and pondering
Reading and singing
Happiness and joy

Love and gentleness
Living and dying
Beginning anew

What makes a poet?
