Take me to where poet are!!

TAKE ME TO WHERE THE POETS ARE 

Take me to where the verses are 
To seeds of letters planted on leaves
Germinating into flowering words 
 
Take me to where the stanzas are 
To words arranged in fantastic flow 
Clinging unto lips, diffusing into hearts 

Take me to where the poets are 
Let me marvel at the spontaneity of their muse 
That stirs and spurs the poetic tides in me 

Take me to where the poets are
Let me ogle at the beads of bardism they string 
Like a pendant I'll hang it around my neck 

Take me to where the poets are
Leisurely I'll swim in soothing streams
Of rivulets of their feelings that flow 

Take me to where the poets are 
Let me go sightseeing in their imaginary world 
To be ensnared into webs of their thrilling tales 

I'll be a rudderless ship, stranded 
In the midst of a vast sea 
Without winds driving me to shore 

I'll be a bird of paradise, lost  
In the thick darkness of woods
Unable to fly and adorn the skies  
 
All because you did not take me to where
the verses are, the stanzas. 

And where … the poets … are.
