It’s not as easy as it looks

To put words down in poetry

They do not tell you in the books

How to rhyme words with ‘poetry’

It is harder than it appears

To find the exact word each time

The struggle through all these long years

To find the words that sound alike

To count each meter of writing

Trimming ideas in brevity

For the reader uninviting

If one line has more than another in longevity

The war to find the exact word

The one word that fits perfectly

Like a lonesome singular herd Kurd nerd purred spurred blurred whirred bird

It must fit nest beautifully

So, don’t forget all the hard work

That has gone into writing form

In poetry does beauty lurk

A beauty beyond given norm

If you think stanza falls from sky

If you think there is ease in verse

I beg you to give it a try

I promise it can’t be much worse
