A Poetic heart of mine sways swiftly
To my own fantasy world every hourly
Poems run through my every nerve and vein
Healing my body’s every possible pain
I’m really sorry for interrupting our ‘Changing Abstracts’ series, but this write-up of mine was much needed as it is my tribute to all the amazing Poets and their beautiful Poetries.
Today, that is 21st March is declared as World Poetry Day by UNESCO. Speaking about history of Poetries in short, the ancient poems were in the form of songs and hymns. It is said that poetries used to exist Before Christ as well. But most of the evidences say that Poetries originated during 14th century. Most of Indian literature including Vedas and many more Sanskrit verses are in poetic form. Nowadays poetry verses are in different forms like Haikus, Sonnets, Limerick and many more.
There is this beautiful literature book “The History of English Poetry” by Thomas Warton published in 18th century which describes about poetic literature. There are infact many movies as well which are based on the theme of ‘Poems’. And if at all you might have seen this movie “The Dead Poets Society”, you might realize how wonderfully a poem affects human life. Poetry lovers can definitely relate to this.
I remember when I was kid and we had Languages in our school as subjects. During those days poems were something I loved the most! And my love for poetry can never ever abate. I wrote my very first poem during my 2nd year of graduation which became my very first blog post ‘Life is too short’ And never stopped after that. It’s been more than 2 years I’m writing poems. And I’m glad that I’ve started learning different forms of poetries through different resources.
On the request of audience, I would like to put up top 10 poetry write-ups and really sorry for being late:
