More Poetry Words

Poems like music will forever make the world go round.

Around the world, poets will not stop writing poems and sing their hymns. Poetry is made out of life. According to Eliot and Wordsworth it is something recollected in tranquility.


Here is a sample poem : Ars Poetica by Archibald Machleish

A poem should be palpable and mute
As a globe fruit

Of casement ledges where the moss has grown –

A poem should be wordless
As the light of the birds

A poem should be motionless in time

Leaving, as the moon releases
Twig by twig the night-entangled trees,

Leaving, as the moon behind the winter leaves,
Memory by memory the mind –

A poem should be motionless in time
As the moon climbs

A poem should be equal to:
Not true

For all the history of grief
An empty doorway and a maple leaf

For love
The leaning grasses and two lights above the sea –

A poem should not mean
But be.

2. Pope John Paul the II Karol Wojtyla

“Love is faceless.”

John Paul the II is the first non-Italian to head the church in five centuries. He is the first Pope from a communist country and the first Pope for officially atheistic Poland.
