A poet is a grown-up child, anyhow,
He couldn’t compose, otherwise…

A bit - willful, a bit - precise…

Hunting is a game of chance. Story continues. Beautiful.
Apt for poemhunter too! I like d quirkiness of poets. Nice poem! Do read me too.
So true and so well stated. I like, I like! And I see a good many others agree. Read mine - A Writer's Dilemma - Adeline
Perhaps poets retain some of the innocence of children and feel free to say what they thinks M lady
'A poet is an adorer of queerness, A bit - willful, a bit - precise' RAB
may i always see with the eyes and heart of a child! great poem once again!
Wow beautiful. A really well thought out poem. May i invite you to read my new poem called, Bluesman.
This is a perfect poem. Very precise too. (wink)
'A POET IS A GROWN-UP CHILD, ANYHOW HE COULD'NT COMPOSE' THESE TWO LINES SPEAK A VOLUME..A LOVELY SHORT POEM INTO MY FAVS
..we had to give up our crayons..our kites..our sand pails at the beach...all of our favorite toys..but we reserved the right to play with words and created our secret vocabularies unbeknownest.right under their noses...good for us! !
'A poet is a grown-up child, anyhow, He couldn’t compose, otherwise…' Amazing, these two lines are enough. Tsira, actually you write very well, compose poem with deep thoughts. On the other hand, you follow the idea of 'small is beautiful' that I like most. I love your poem with pleasure and this one also. Cheers, +++ 10 +++
i like this one alot tsira..10/10 for me
Tsira, well written, though, in my opinion, a bit gently. Oh! If I weren't a real kid, I'd never write the nonsense you read. Thank you.

I see that you are philosophizing about the poet.Quite interesting.
well... they need not hunt alone...let them practise hunting along with the ever hunting ever haunting scary scarred master hunters! a fitting advice to one and all...ten votes
