The Grand and the Quaint

Precise is not adequate
Details won't do
Life often needs to be
Rounded and pruned

Poetry deals with
Undulations of fate
Poetry deals with
The Grand and the Quaint

Universal truths come down
Simple and pure
Deleting anxiety
Quantum demure

Feelings and follies
Pain and regret
Poetry soothes the
Confusion beset*

Life isn't simple
Life isn't complex
Life needs true poetry's
Grace to reflect

-EVE Featherstone

*beset - 1.(of a problem or difficulty) trouble or threaten persistently.
