‘To The Society of Classical Poets’ by Steve Johns The Society March 13, 2013 Poetry To the Society of Classical Poets, The website you have is great for starting poets. I don’t know what I would have done without your help. I can be called a poet because of your help. May your anthology be filled with great poems, And may you prosper for selecting my poems. There’s much that has to be done in this field of work. Most people cannot comprehend this field of work. Poetry is written for all the world to see. Many believe that anything written can be Called poetry for the sake of posterity. Well, let me inform you that prose and poetry Are opposites of each other and cannot be Be the same thing. To say that there’s prose poetry Is like saying that there’s a color called “black white”. It’s preposterous; black is not the same as white. Black cannot be white, white cannot be black. They are Opposites of each other. To people who are In the opinion that free verse is poetry, Metered verse is the true source of good poetry.
