Some poems are like a mountain's stair of stone,
each phrase is upward linked to higher peeks.
Profundity and sentience are shown
in such a way, the clouds that shroud mystique
are rolled away, and one can almost hear
a synchopated song upon the breexe.
To me a poem should be lavishly clear,
giving terrain to common doings, with ease.
And things uncommon are also woven
in deft and nimble passages of verse
both lucid and finnessed, like Beethoven,
that attract, electrify and immerse.
Poems should teach, not just be vexation's scream,
but streaming light, like parable or dream.
