~THE FACELESS POETS ~

~THE FACELESS POETS ~

Faceless names, through years, unfettered by muses
A cellophane place with un-fame and elegy supplied
Where many a poet's pen has crawled and clawed confused
For the ink, like the poet's blood is becoming sun-dried
Frozen cryptically, as faceless poets throughout time

Voices unnoticed, but words remembered do retain
A friendly countenance, a joyous exuberance, ever-evolving
Thus, when discussed by the few, faceless poets do remain
A song in their hearts, sung happily as records, ever-revolving
Like the 'Tomb of the Unknown Soldier' , faceless poets ever-calling

In some long gone, parasol driven, crowding madness
A sea of youth explodes with a curiosity driven sadness
Where lost identities are fragments from faceless poets that hide
Growing virtues of faceless poets that strive to stay alive
Through legends, backwater storytellers and writers of rhyme...

Hey T....I am sure most of us on Cosmo can relate that we do not expect to ever become rich and famous off our poetry....but we do hope that what we write will resonate with someone and our words will live on in some way to have meaning....We are faceless as far as lost in a crowd of many....but yet our words will have meaning and purpose after we are gone....If you think about it, it is really  respectful and honorable to be a poet and know that you are leaving words that carry on and can touch, even if you are not recognized for the thoughts...Great picture to represent the "Faceless Poet:...Great rewrite that shows off your talents.  xo Love n Hugs, C

Brilliant , and truthful commentary on the state of
affairs for those who delve in (Or breathe) the arts.

I'm often torn between the idea that 1) all are poets.
And 2) the poet is one who speaks novels of life from
The soul, which adds a piece of eternity to all who heed.
