The title might seem strange to some, but this article will help us understand what is it that makes a poetry – call poetry. Basically it is the way the expression of the words, confession, meter arrangement, symbolism, irony, resemblance, spontaneity etc. At the end of the poem, the poet who had just recited the poem, will get a feeling that whatever he had in his mind has been revealed in just a few couples of lines. A poem is meant to bring some sort of chill in the opposite person who is listening to it.
Reciting a poem also entirely depends upon the poet. An ordinary person might not be able to recite a poem in the best possible manner but a professional poet will ensure that his poem has touched the heart of the listeners. The poet will have a strange expression in his face which automatically touches the heart of the listeners. His movement of the eyes also plays a very important role while he recites a poem. There are chances that a poet does not capitalize or win the heart of his listeners but that is similar to the way how each and every song that we hear might not necessarily touch our hearts in any way. But some songs will mesmerize our minds in such a manner that we do not get bored to hear the song again and again and again.
Each poem has got a short story in it. There will be a start and an end to the poem. Even the shortest of poetry will have a meaning and that is exactly why poets are given their due respect. All of us might not be able to become poets but professional poets will make sure that their poems are loved, enjoyed and remembered by their fans for a very long period of time.
