An Etheree Poem

Technique of the Poets




to read and share

with other people

who live around the world.

Goodhearted words have different

effects from words of sharp anger

or hate in patterns by the poets

who are skilled in smooth poetic techniques.

Flaming Candles

So Long, farewell,
goodbye, my friends.
Keep the
candles of poetry
If by chance, they
do not be discouraged.
Bring them back
to brilliance
with words
only you can create.
