What If? – A Poem By Walt Page, The Tennessee Poet

What if there was no poetry
Just bland, nondescript words


No nursery rhymes
No lyrics for music


What if all the poetry in the world
Disappeared


Blank greeting cards
No more Hallmark Holidays


Thousands of poets
With nothing to write


Poetry is a mirror of the poet
A window to life


A quiet corner of beauty
A warm blanket of the familiar


Without poetry
There is no magic


No songs to sing
No nursery rhymes


I cannot imagine
A world without poetry

Nor could I live in one
