“Classically Crafted” (poem / poetry)

I channel the vigour of Ed’ Allan Poe,

As beasts encircle, the ink doth flow,

My fevered ravings, cling to the parchment,

The fire in my belly’s increasingly ardent.

This Scribe knows not, the exact composition,

Of what’s forming, through iambic traditions,

The muses, they call, my soul reaches out,

Deciphers the code, then delivers, with clout.

Sometimes you just can’t beat a classic approach, “The Greats” were recognised as such for a reason (although, some posthumously so). I do however, sometimes feel the examples we are given of great penmanship, do not always convincingly convey the power and transformational energy of writing and ideas.

With this piece, I chose to pay homage to a phenomenal wordsmith, Edgar Allan Poe, whose impact is still deservingly being felt and appreciated today, long after his earthly departure. I hope I too can do justice to my craft, keeping it alive and thriving, for centuries to come.

Granted, I do things in a different way to my pen-wielding forefathers and foremothers, more reflective of MY era and experiences, but I too shall one day be seen as old fashioned, and with any luck, classic, but there will always be an essence of timelessness to the written word.

Cheers, to writing, and the worlds it transports us to! (clink), CHEERS!

Love and Respect always,

Following Whispers.

Author: Following Whispers

Hello, I'm Following Whispers, an English poet and author who has been writing for over two decades. I'm a self-professed geek who can get deep sometimes, but I personally don't take myself too seriously, I just love to have fun, plus inspire myself and others. In my early twenties, I realised that beauty can be born out of not only love, but also pain and other motivations. The more I used writing poetry to make sense of my busy mind, the more it helped me to find a silver lining in even the darkest emotions, experiences, observations and topics; find positivity even in the face of extreme negativity; find strength when I was being forced to feel weak; and find hope that my tomorrows would be brighter. I began publishing my writing in 2018 and currently have three books available Worldwide, including my most recent release "Poems That Move You". I have bared my soul in each and every one of my poems, and I'm confident that you'll get just as much from reading them and relating them, as I did from writing them. Please feel free to look around my site and read the free poems I've shared there, after which, why not pick up a book of mine, drop by Instagram, connect with me and say hello!
