June 16, 2019 / By Edyth Question:
Here's a slightly revised little ditty I penned a while ago in response to the above question.
So what makes a person poetic, you ask?
To answer your query is no easy task.
For words are the tools of the poet, you see,
they spring from the heart and they yearn to be free,
but they must have order and discipline too,
be poignant and probing and say what is true.
To pass on a story is each poet's goal,
a tale from the heart that will touch ev'ry soul,
and make readers cry or e'en smile at his rhyme,
and be able to do so time after time.
So what makes a person poetic, you plead?
The gift to be able on paper to bleed.
mtheory - and you often ignore what is there in order to try and make a redundant point. I think the phrases 'poignant and probing' and 'to be able on paper to bleed, along with the line 'a tale from the heart that will touch ev'ry soul' sufficiently covers what you allude to. I guess I should have concluded that your inability to write stems from an inability to read.

Never thought I'd see you drop an "e'en" . . . did I miss one before this?
Nice inversion in the last line, really.
The problem with your theory about readers crying and smiling, though, is that there are many "consumers" of poetry that are pleased with the lowest common denominator of what is given to them. You know how many times lil ol' me has wandered into the poetry section of Borders and walked out disgusted? Yeesh.

Originally Answered: What makes a person a Scientist?
If you have doubts about that person you know, see what he has published recently and in which journals. You cannot be a "scientist" if you're not contributing to science, and for the last 150 years such contributions have been done in the form of publications in peer-reviewed academic journals.
Some go as far as use citation counts as a measure of the scientist's worth, but I think looking at what was actually written is a lot more important.
News channels are irrelevant.
oh poor and sad poet
compensating for insignificance
words that are ordered and disciplined
are but one aspect of life
and stories in life do not always have a point
except to share what was experienced
what makes a poem
is how we feel
when we are done reading
poetry should make us humble
when the poets words
say it all
and we simply
forgive my pointing this out
you often leave
things left unsaid
sacrificed to the denial
of life as art
I like the way I said it better
but thanks iano

Then as you say if I rip out my soul
Until my chest ought but a big gapping hole
Smearing the paper with blood as it drips
Will allow me to rhyme such poetic quips
As the masters, the Bard, the awesome Magill?
If that be the case, I sure the hell will!

That was fun. Mostly. But then you dropped those last two "heavy" lines on us. I'd just keep it light and frothy on this one. I thought it was pretty good. Not all poems have to be desperately serious.
