I Write PoetryA Poem by Barbara Walker
People write poetry for diverse reasons,
as in poems that describe the yearly seasons.
Poetry can cause your heart to soar,
making you want to write even more.
It can make love words flow
and can make a friend of a foe.
If you give poetry a chance,
it can describe angel's performing a celestial dance.
Poetry can show the love for father and mother
and describe the antics of your brother.
Poetry can describe anything people do,
it can reveal the hatred, too.
Poems have been written about a day at the beach,
nothing is out of poetry's reach.
It can make kings of old come alive
or make you sad enough to cry.
Poetry can help relationship's to mend
and it can also help them to end.
I write poetry of who, what or when,
as the blood from my heart flows to my pen.
