Poetry Making

Verlie Burroughs is a west coast writer from Vancouver Island.


Poetry is a Song

It's a song in your heart that won't go away

It's that downcast feeling you get on a rainy day

It's as high as the hills and wide as the sea

Everything's poetry

It's the 'to do' list that never ends

It's the letter you forgot to send to a friend

It's a bird with no wing

It's a dog without a bone

It's a place that you stay

when you haven't got a home

Poetry is a song

You sing along.
