On Reading A Book About Poetic Craft

Birds
Render words
About poetic craft
Dull.

Am I daft
To seek
For knowledge in a book
When I could upon nature look
And hear the birds speak?

      Thank you for your comment and liking my poem. Books have their place (and its an important one). However the understanding we gain just from allowing the birds to enter our heart is, I think even mor profound. You are also right that true knowledge comes from within. Kevin

    Kudos to you on using the word daft in your short but sweet poem. My Gram and Mom used to use that word and it brought back some memories that made me smile. 😊
