What Is Poetry?

A Villanelle On This Subject

Introduction

I know there will be others who can answer this question far better than I, but I thought it was a good subject to state my personal thoughts and observations in a villanelle.

The music is "Surfin' Bird" by The Trashmen. For them "Bird is the word" but in poetry, anything can be the word.

    When I do it feels like self indulgent wank. I'm always jealous of you and Cathy and others who pull it off so well!

  • Oooo, this was excellent! I really loved it!

    It has been many years since I have heard Surfing Bird! Great fun with the word! 😁 "That Is The Question, What Is Poetry? The Words That You Weave To Tell A Story" And sometimes mine are just rhymes. I will never be the poet that so many are on Vocal and that is okay as I can pretend! πŸ’•

    Yeah, but some poetry should not be shared, and I know you know what I'm talking about. You seen it, too, lol.
