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
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.
