The Beauty Of Poetry/Is Within Its Sound

Poem By Shalom Freedman


The Beauty of Poetry
Is within its sound
And beyond its music-

It is a rhythm
But something else also
Beyond –

Its meaning is it
But not all of it
And beyond music and meaning-

The beauty of poetry is its sound
And the way we hear it within us-

We are the beauty of poetry
We are the ones who hear
The poetry is us-

But the Beauty is more than what we are
Or more than the sound alone ever will be-

The Beauty of the Poetry
Is more than Poetry
More than Beauty
More than the Beauty of Poetry-

Many have won prizes

Nothing Tells Me How To Begin Again

Nothing tells me how to begin again
Or even how to try
I am too old now
And how can I expect to do at the age of seventy- five?

I Must Continue To Write

There will always be another poem
And with that poem- hope
However absurd-
So even if I despair
