An Ode to Poetry

by Shubhkarman Singh Sandhu

From the dancing golden daffodils, of Wordsworth. To the colorful world, of Louis Armstrong.

From the free country, of Tagore. To the diverging roads of Frost.

From the drunkenness, of Li Po. To the only black kid, of Clint Smith.

From the dark night, of Blind Willie Johnson. To the charge of the brigade, of Tennyson.

There is a vibrant world of words around us.

Uncharted by us all except, The men and women who we, Call as ‘Timeless Masterpiece’!

Shakespeare, Gibran, Frost and countless more.

Oh! I thank, praise and respect, the guider of all.

Thank you poetry, to sway us all along!

This poem is inspired by some of my favorite pieces of literature. They are as follows in no particular order.

'Daffodils' by William Wordsworth. 'The Road Not Taken' by Robert Frost. 'Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening' by Robert Frost. 'Where the Mind is Without Fear' by Rabindranath Tagore.

'What a Wonderful World' by Louis Armstrong. 'Drinking Alone in the Moonlight' by Li Po. 'Ode to the Only Black Kid in the Class' by Clint Smith. 'Dark was the Night' by Blind Willie Johnson.

'The Charge of the Light Brigade' by Lord Alfred Tennyson. 'Father William' by Lewis Carrol.
