wrought by passion and experience
a statement
part of person
left drying in the sun

seeks to share
in carefully chosen words
seldom sufficient -
an understanding incomplete

Perhaps the value of poetry is in the ear of the beholder. A quote from John Keats ...

The genious of poetry must work out its own salvation in man ... (or woman of course)

Words Alone and Poets Are also explore the nature of poetry.

The poem POETRY was modified after a comment from Canberra poet Anne Edgeworth. I had the priveledge to share a morning with her at her Canberra home at a meeting of the local Doonkuna poetry group.
