A tribute to poetry – A stream of unconscious Poem

What syllables can be uttered in your praise

Your extended metaphors an allegory of our days

Your alliterated couplets coin bonanzas in your stanzas

Your rhymed refinery our collective muse

When with ambiguity your meaning fuse

Your prickly metre sometimes trampled underfoot

When by chance, personification looses its comfort

Your selfless selfishness the antithesis of your longevity

Famous lines a life of their own perpetuity

Alas! “To be or not to be…”

Flesh on the bones of your sonnet’s charcuterieΒ 

You bamboozle with chiasmic twist

“The first last and the last first.”

Poetry, your reflective meaning glows

And even through ellipsis…flows

Poetry, you are a much prized gem in the elusive crown of prose.
