This I Believe

I believe that through all of time

Poetry helps make life sublime

But I also believe that a poem makes one grieve

If it lacks the magic of rhyme.

The stuff call free verse is an art

In which poetry plays not a part

As the True Poet knows, without rhyme, it’s prose

Unlike poetry which touches the heart.

I believe that rhyme is the key

To the joy found in great poetry

So let’s not admire the free versifier

And give credit to rhymers like me!
