The Language of Poetry

Poetry speaks to all people, it is said,


Whether your style is choppy, fluent, or has a plethora of pauses- it finds a way to your soul and speaks the same language as you


Whether you are reading a poem in the morning paper, opening a class with a few stanzas, or laying in bed-
with your feet screaming after a long day


There is a poem for everyone, everywhere, for any time of day
because, you know it is said-
poetry speaks to all people

The author's comments:

I was inspired by a poem published in The Trouble With Poetry collection by Billy Collins. The title of the poem was “Eastern Standard Time”
