NaPoWriMo: Day 14

Prompt: a poem that deals with the poems, poets, and other people who inspired you to write poems.


The poets that raised me
wrote no anthologies
I was nurtured by rhyme
from alternate technologies

The poets that raised me
paired rhythm with tones
I was cradled by sound
through aged earphones

The poets that raised me
gave language to thought
I was tutored by lyric
through carefulness wrought

The poets that raised me
verbalized pleasure and pain
I was refined by melody
from a deliberate refrain

The poets that raised me
captivate line by line
I was inspired by verse
that could be only mine
