Poetry is…

By Roberta Gibson

Poetry is amazing.
It has special-sounding words.
Buzz, leap and skedaddle,
Singing of the birds.

Poetry is so pleasing.
It can make you feel at ease.
Sleeping on a sunny beach,
Tickled by a lazy breeze.

Poetry can be powerful.
It can shake you to the core.
Ideas that wake you up,
And then make you think some more.

Poetry can be funny.
It can make your whole face grin,
Laugh until your knees are weak,
And tears run down your chin.

Poetry is your voice.
What only you have to say.
But it delights you when someone else
Says they also feel that way.
