The Revival of Learning - by Bob Atkinson

The Revival of Learning
(c)2013 Bob Atkinson
stimulated excitement rages
as thoughts began anew
learning led by simple precepts
of rhythm, rhyme and review

solid foundations given
to those who grew up quick
with steady hand of propriety
morality devised
with softness not hard stick

before, with prose dividing us
so harsh an outlook on life
we never had the chance to love
saddened in darkened twilight

of humanity's old position
fussing, fighting, destroying with fire
fruits of another era built up
then bombed by selfish desire

today our hearts settle quick
that question of where to go
we find Poetry solves for us
open mysteries of life unfolded
