Whence Comes Poetry?

© 2018 Steve Cook


Whence comes this poetry?

From what fount spring this art

These pentameters and couplets rhymed?

What's been creation's pulse and beating heart

Since the very dawn itself of time,

The purpose, the power, the spark,

That every striving poet drove?

In search of it I shone a candle in the dark

And found what lights the candle; 'tis called love.
