Wielding a tool, mighty and spiky
Mightier than either the sword or rod
He reigns, monarch in Fancy's domain
Sketching life in fanciful colour and mode

Though outlawed by the great sage of Greece, Branding the bard, aberrant and a fool Oft beneath the façade of his wayward thoughts, Lie heaps of wisdom for the discerning soul.......impressive concluding. A brilliant poem on poets has been satutely delineated.
Alone he saunters the stretching strands/Watching virulent breakers in fury heave/Often his heart dancing with the tide/And swinging with the rhythm of rising wave......so pragmatic! Each line of this poem finds its essence! A great poem that I feel like reading every day dear madam! Work of art!
All that's lovesome meets his eyes And communes to him in profuse delight Which he turns into rhyme and rhythm For the whole of mankind to devour and digest Befitting lines to your poem.. Delightful work, Valsa. Congrats 10+
From his harp flow symphonies sweet Songs of longing, love and Of idyllic happiness, peace and bliss....These three lines I like most dear madam! My pleasure revisiting this wonderful poem of yours (Poetess Magadha)
Poet is mighty, poet is beauty and poet is duty. A poet has greater responsibility to do his duty and you have crystallized most of my notions about a poet beautifully. I have loved reading this poem and this has motivated my heart. Thank you for sharing...10++
I thought I must read this great poem rightly at the start of new 2020. This magnificent poem provides me lot of encouragement because I feel a genuine poet does exactly what you have so meticulously depicted in this brilliant poem dear madam! Wish you HNY 2020.
A poem of great value and substance dear mam! We should substantially learn what is expressed in in this splendid work! Thanks for sharing.......10+++++
Among all the outstanding poems I have ever read! What imagery! 'the speckled blue of the infinite skies'. I wonder how you are able to get words together in this fashion. Amazing! I will go thro your recent poems, which I haven't read.My best wishes to you.
I prayed for words and the words were farther hid. Valsa George, please give me an answer. Is it true that I might be a poet or I'm simply trying to redefine my being in a different form of prayer?
His ears intent on the song of birds/That comes floating from the far off groves......a poet normally loves nature and the melody wrought by varied creatures! This great poem has all the ingredients to be read again and again! I rate this magnificent work as one of the best poems in this great site!
Excellent poem..really a great piece of poetry..A poet reigns in his/her Fancy's domain..10+++++
What a wonderful poem that has me amazed at its depth.
This poem deserves full 10 and I have voted for this.
This is great opportunity to read your 100th poem which is also placed among top 500 poems. A poet feasts on the gleam of the auburn sun. He perceives the entire universe at a glance and in deep silence he narrates the beauty of creation in his many poems. A poet always beholds a great value. This poem is definitely very nicely and excellently penned. Thank you very much.
Beautiful poem dear poetess....////thanks
On the fabric of words in befitting verse He steals away from the noisy crowd In to the stillness of the cloistered cell To dwell with Fancy's mystic charms still love this poem still I love
From his harp flow symphonies sweet Songs of longing, love and Of idyllic happiness, peace and bliss, Fuelling hearts with vigorous zest Not just this, every stanza stands out, a beautiful rendition on poets.
I have kept a copy of this poem on my table! Each time I sit to write a poem, I thoroughly grasp the powerful message ventilated to the poets through this great work of art!
Before landing my feet to my possible literary journey in 2019, I thought to have a thorough grasp of this great poem! I perceive the congenital value of this masterpiece to a new poet like me! Wish you a healthy and jovial new year 2019 with happy poetry writing!
This is a tremendous detailed poem about a poet, how amazingly worded. A magnificent piece of poetry, dear Valsa, I so admired your love for sheer poetry. Your crystallized notions are very precious and most important for other poets to read them. Though 6 years have elapsed, I want to congratulate you still for this 100th poem on Poem Hunter. To my Poem List and the Poet to my Poet List. A 10 Full Vote.
