Poetry With Body And Soul by jaybird1

I yearn to write my poems with rhyme
and will continue down through time.
It adds to body and to soul
and that should be our major goal.
It helps with cadence and with flow,
like music, adds a special glow.
The purpose of good poetry,
would enhance love, set spirit free.
Long ago into Shakespeare's day,
his sonnets were what ruled the way.
When free verse later came along,
it dimmed our flow, we lost our song.
So, I shall always write with rhyme-
Till I have spent my earthly time.

Poetry, like music should lift our spirit and have a smooth flow- jaybird
