The Painter and the Poet

The Painter and the Poet

A Poem by Katie Lynn
"

If one knows how to speak of beauty, another knows how to create it.

"
A Poet took his gilded pen
And wrote a line or two,
Then read aloud his magic words
To mould the world anew.

A Painter heard the Poet's words,
Then took his golden brush,
To paint the world alive again,
Down to the river's rush.

Never before had our world seen
More beauty, true and fair,
The Painter brought the words to life
That breathed into the air.

Together they helped the earth to bloom,
And changed the land once plain,
Speaker of love, Artist of life,
Masters of their domain.

Oddly, this was written while I sat in a doctor's office waiting to be called on. Ideas come from the strangest places!

I think some people forget there are many forms of art, not just drawing and painting. Music is art, Writing/Poetry is art, Acting is art. There are many ways to express yourself artistically. They all relate to and inspire each other. I think this represents that! Good job

The rhyming pattern is GOLDEN. I use a similar one. Rhyming flows so beautifully, I wouldn't have it any other way. This is a beautiful piece.

Thank you so much for taking the time to review! I appreciate it.
This is very well structured! ha I just used a qualifier.
As for the poem it's really good and i liked it a lot, Keep up the good work also inspiration tends to come from the places you least expect. I am not a good writer or poet at all but i see potential in your writing, i think you should enter a international poem competion so everyone can see your amazing poems. if you already have then well done haha.

i love this poem! I am the writer in the house, my husband is the painter. We lived in a house in the country once where he painted to music as I wrote. My unfinished epic was called "Sea Canticle" which is what he named that painting. We heard the same story, and captured it in words and paint. Your poem brought back fond memories of that time together. Thank you!

Poets and painters are cool. I'd try painting but I'd probably get paint in my eye. Good work from the clinic here.
