a poets word, soft and somber
introduces a farmer, to the great world yonder
a poets word, gentle and truthful
gives way to the lovers who are youthful
a poets word, angry and enraged
connects with the soldier, regretful and aged
a poets word, brave and gallant
distracts the reader from their talent
a poets word, meaningful and brave
gives courage to those whose conditions are grave
A poets word, convincing and full of voice
gives to people feeling and choice

The author's comments:
I was inspired to write this poem when I was thinking about how powerful words can be. I definitely believe the saying that "the pen is mightier than the sword".
