Simple paragraphs and essays often fail to depict the idea of the writer. The author often wishes for a channel for the expression of words, anxiously waiting to be written. Poetry is the best medium through which these words can be given a way to be conveyed. It is something that covers the highest happiness and the deepest sorrows. Poetry is a literary work in verse writing of high quality, great beauty, a piece of art, with emotional sincerity, a graceful expression showing imagination and deep feeling with elegant quality. It is a profound insight that enables a poet to idealize reality and to see the things or situations in a particular way, to express his feelings of his own accord and to represent them in such a way as to delight the readers. A poet is a possessor of unusual sensitivity or insight. He is able to express things in a beautiful and romantic way. He is an imaginative, a creative, imaginative and artistic person. A multicolored arc in the sky is just a rainbow to a layman but a poet has greater capacity to receive sense impressions about it to express his powerful feelings. The great poet Wordsworth was such an individual whose heart leapt up with joy on beholding a rainbow and he expressed his feelings of his own accord about the rainbow.
Short English Poems
A short poem may be a stylistic choice or it may be that you have said what you intended to say in a more concise way. Either way, they differ significantly from a long poem. Since there are fewer words people tend to spend more time on choosing a word that fits the subject to perfection. Because of this meticulous attitude, writing a short poem is often more tedious than writing a long poem yet it serves to be better understood and liked by the readers. Short poem should retain the objective of consoling, encompassing a great power and appeal to delight the reader while heightening an awareness of various situations and discussing the aspects of life. Following verses have been taken from one of the poems of a famous English Poet, Thomas Gray.
“Full many a gem of purest ray serene
The dark unfathomed caves of ocean bear:
Full many a flower is born to blush unseen
And waste its sweetness on the desert air.”
These verses are of much value and significance to reveal the reality of life. Individuals whose abilities have remained undeveloped have been compared to exquisite gems lying unknown at the bottom of the sea and to lovely and sweet-smelling flowers that bloom in the wilderness. Their talents would, of course, have developed and they would have certainly been successful in their abilities had they had opportunities. What may, therefore, be construed is the need for favorable opportunities that the capabilities of individuals may have occasion to blossom. Hence, a poem is a very clear expression of very mixed feelings in a very beautiful way.
