The Literary Whole

All poets have a tale to share,
historical, or new.
The more they share it, it will grow,
whether fictional or true.

It speaks its way into the realm
of verse throughout the ages.
Each work becomes the signature
of authors through their stages.

We'll see them in their writings;
their distinct, poetic soul
will find its place respectively,
amongst the greater whole.

A potpourri of languages
that makes a world diverse,
translates that world of poetry
to an open universe.

~William Attaway Tatum
