The Voice of The Poets (4 poets Rally Week 48)



The voice of the poets
call our wandering mind,
Through haunting ghosts
and echoing lands,
The power of nature is to be shed,
The pain and suffering of humans are to be heard.
Via the fights of wars,
and the crown of kings,
we see joy, sorrow, and wild things.
What dreams shall we pursue?
What faith shall we carry?
Ask poets,
Set your own goals.
No passion bids us wait,
The voice of the poets is the voice of our fate.
