The Feeling Of Poetry Is Lost
THE FEELING OF POETRY IS LOST
by Shalom Freedman
The feeling of poetry is lost -
Lines are written,
But they are without poetic feeling.
Dutiful lines which do not inspire.
Line by line
To restore my soul.
I do not feel I am doing this.
Can a poem be written without poetic feeling inside?
Is what I am doing now
Or is it simply one more small delusion
Through which a life is gotten through?
