About the Poem
The best poem you ever read just may be your own. My hope is that something you have written has touched you thus so. Reach into your heart and never think you are not a poet just because you believe others to be greater poets.
You are your own and your poetry means the most to you.

The Best Poem You Ever Read
Is not necessarily by Thoreau
Or for that matter Keats or Shelley
Or Edgar Allan Poe
It might not be amongst the
Dusty books there on the shelf
The greatest poem you ever read
May just be written by yourself
Did you ever write a poem?
That just made you softly sigh
Or was there one that emotion
Made you bittersweetly cry
Is there one that was born to you?
That made you wholly believe
Words weren't born long time ago
You yourself can conceive
This poem that I am writing
Is not the best there ever was
But few poems can do for me
What my own poetry does
When you think of Percey Shelly
And when you think of ole John Keats
Remember theirs is their own
You wish to match their feats
I hope the poetry you respect
From which have made you grown
I hope the greatest poem you ever read
Was one you call your own
The End (sentiment)
