World Poetry Day

In celebration of World Poetry Day, I've chosen to share a poem about the timeless quality of words and language.

For All Time

These are the diamonds of man, Riches sprung from caves of the mind, depths of the soul. Passed from lover to lover, mother to child, Twisted by tongues of time. In cloudy seas of sorrow, they voice the falling tear

which cannot grieve alone. Loved, hated, cursed, forgiven, since time began, Changed by the passing years. In poetry, book, and song, Formed in inky black as mysterious as the sky. The ever-changing circle unites as one, The everlasting word.

Francesca Tyer, from Reflections, 2017


Happy World Poetry Day!
