POETIC PLEASURE.
By
Bernard V Kyle
[c] 2006

A verse may enthrall few people at all,
And receive, it would seem, the cold shoulder,
Yet that very verse, may achieve the reverse,
And enchant, some other beholder.

Now a haiku or two, may satisfy you,
While some, may yearn for the Quatrain,
A search for Lanturne, may then make one yearn,
To explore the lure of the Cinquain.

But with many a verse, in many a form,
There's a world of poetic pleasure,
To let one recite, all sweetness & light
The joy of some poetic treasure.

Yay! Carry on ,Bernard!!!
You have gone the whole yard,
And told'em all where to get off!
Your rhyme and your rhythm
Put them in a tail-spin.
Can y'hear them just splutter and cough?

Seldom now is a poet
Who shows that he knows it,
The true inner soul of a poem.
The thing that transports you
And shows you the whole view,
The feeling that you're, at last, home.
