Poetry's not Just for Poets

Poetry's not just for poets at all
It's for all who enjoy the read
Who like to share thoughts enthralled
... Feeling enriched by the deed

Poetry is for those who like to partake
Of words from writers who have a stake
In forming coherent thoughts into verse
And sharing them well, without purse

Poetry's for everyone - young or old
It's a cure-all for what ails you, too
For well-phrased words are better than gold
And some shine as bright as morning dew

- Tristram
