Sing a Song of People

Sing a Song of People :

Eveybody seems to be in such a hurry these days! I wonder why?

Sing a song of people

Walking fast or slow;

People in the city,

Up and down they go.

People on the side walk,

People on the bus;

People passing, passing,

In back and front of us.

People on the subway

Underneath the ground;

People riding taxis

Round and round and round.

People with their hats on,

Going in the doors;

People with umbrellas

When it rains and pours.

People in tall buildings

And in stores below;

Riding elevators

Up and down they go.

People walking singly,

People in a crowd;

People saying nothing,

People talking loud.

People laughing, smiling,

Grumpy people too;

People who just hurry

And never look at you!

Sing a song of people

Who like to come and go;

Sing of city people

You see but never know!


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.
