What is poetry?

What makes a poem?

What makes these letters sing?

What makes these letters dance?

Is poetry lines

Broken into stanzas,

Words broken into lines,

Passion, tamed into words?

Is poetry rage

Or courage, or hope?

Is poetry grief

Or joy, or boldness?

Is poetry tears,

Or smiles, or laughter?

Is poetry rebellion against

The oppression of mundaness?

So I ask you again,

What is poetry?
