Poetry is a Dying Art

I have been on the Internet
now for almost over two decades
also I'm a published author
by name

All web site guys
make money and go...
except you and me
innocent Neos

Do you like me,
now see
poetry is a lagging art
archaic old fellows style

we are young
at least at heart
inside out
why not compose
mostly
free style
as Lovedly
does

your guess /verse
please your own views
at worse

I think poetry is dying not because people are leaving poetry but because poetry is leaving the people. Now for the part that's gonna cause stones to be hurled at me..... I blame the prevalence of free verse. Now free verse can be beautiful and convey meaning well but the bad part is it is not as easily recalled as metered rhyming poetry. Now if one goes out in the "real" world where it's not just poets reading other poets and ask a non poet to recite a poem . What do you get? By a vast majority you will hear a rhyming meter poem, the same kind which too few are writing any more. So if poetry IS dying we have nobody to blame but ourselves for not giving the general public what they want. Now I'm gonna duck behind this here wall and start dodging.........

I always did and will admire you
jess always kicked me I admired him too
then before he passed away
to me some where he did say
I have started loving /liking you

what I have been told the neopoet book project has been put on hold

what a great blog, i have been reading a fabulous book called "the ode less travelled" and it has been teaching me that we all in the world have the poet within its just how we use it, so may i say maybe its the poets who really have the courage to be that bit different who may make something stand out, I personally would never dream of building a villa on my poems, however those more professional may well do and why not? in the end the poet who can speak to another person within his words has won or lost in some very sad cases. Scribbler may now duck whilst i throw a plate at him! LOL

Take care my dear Lovedly.

Thank you...Teddy

for stout stone walls lol

In fact the idea of poetry continues to grow especially during this pandemic.
The art in poetry has indeed gone to the wayside with Free Form. Free Form is only one way to write poetry.

Please comment anywhere anytime.

I read your reference

Yes it is still an art
not many/any earn bread by it
It's a poor/idle man's free
pastime/hobby
be at it
I compose mostly
Free Style
Time is at a premium for me

Each one for him/herself
may we all be
Independently Free
