A Day for Poetry

There is a time
and a place
a thought; a feeling; an emotion
when there is no other way to say it.

It can be for
sorrow and grief
joy and exultation
when politics angers you
or life confounds you.
When talking is done,
friends are parted,
or arguments left unresolved.
There is one voice, remaining
that can reconcile you.

It is the time
and the place, where
thoughts, feelings, emotions,
can only be expressed and heard
in a few short lines
or a volume of stanzas.
And a poem is the
only way to say it.
