To Be A Poet

To be a poet 

But never to show it 

Is more of a crime

Than engaging with rhyme;


So be not afraid 

For when you’re decayed, 

From out of your tomb

Brave poppies will bloom.

  1. Thank you Roland, as usual your bright poem delights. Fun and deep.
    O.k., so we will all engage in rhyme… will just verses do? … 😊.
    So, on this encouragement I will continue to show my scribbles … with courage.
