A little bird sees

Ripe fruit on our tree

And eats a tasty berry.

The bird flies tall

And a berry seed falls.

The rains have come

Hurry! let’s run.

Clouds, rain and sun...

Our plant is born, a little one.

Now a tree,

With branches long,

Crows and bird-song,

Crawling ants and spiders’ webs,

Caterpillars with tiny legs,

Rich green leaves, life aplenty.

The tree has fruit,

Some big, some small,

Let us pluck them

But do not fall!

Crows perch, squirrels run,

And see the monkeys

Having fun!

Strong branches,

With pretty swings,

Our beautiful tree

Has so many things.

Pranab and Smita Chakravarti

The word POETRY originates from a Greek word meaning TO MAKE. A poet is thus a maker and the poem something that is made or created. No single definition of poetry is possible but some characteristic features of poetry may be mentioned. Poetry has a musical quality with rhythm, pitch, metre and it may use figures of speech such as simile and metaphor. While quite a few poems in this selection are in traditional forms, the unit also includes modern poems that are free from formal restrictions.

Here is a list of English Poems written by various authors. Whatever the question is, poetry may be the answer. Writers say poetry provides them with comfort, a way to express themselves and the discipline of finding the essence with few words. Writing the poem (and finding just the right word) is the measure of success that the authors use. Really good poetry is instinctive. It’s who you are. It’s from the heart. You need to expose yourself to all kinds of poets and you may find your motivation and muse that way. Poetry gets to the core meaning. Poetry expands ideas.
