What will your verse be?

 

We don’t read and write poetry

because it’s cute.

 

 

We read and write poetry

because we are members of the human race.

 

And the human race is filled with passion.

 

And medicine, law, business, engineering –

these are noble pursuits

and necessary to sustain life.

 

But poetry, beauty, romance, love

– these are what we stay alive for.

 

To quote from Whitman,

“O me, O life

of the questions of these recurring.

Of the endless trains of the faithless.

Of cities filled with the foolish.

What good amid these,

O me, O life?

 

Answer:

that you are here.

That life exists

and identity.

 

That the powerful play goes on,

and you may contribute a verse.”

 

“That the powerful play goes on,

and you may contribute a verse.”

 

What will your verse be?
