Poets’ Hearts by Mark Andrew Heathcote

If only I could control my anger

Turn it from a volcanic ash cloud

Of simmering hot water vapour

From a furry, a rage to a whimper

But poets’ hearts are bitterly proud

They reside each under a thundercloud.

Hoping, praying for rain, for a rainbow

Arching, palms to palms like a halo.

A lightning bolt that’s some charged words

Something hovering, with hummingbirds.

If only I could control my passion

Fasten it down with more dispassion.

But poets’ hearts are tempered, annealed

It takes years for them to bend and yield.
