all that will be is and was?

the poet and poetry used to be about three things:

the image and imagination
meaning and feeling
and reason that rhymes

and this is still good
as good as the rain falling
showering us bounty

then we were rid
of form and measure and song
but held on tight to thought

but when all that’s left
is a picture in the mind
we’re all alone under the sun

and everything is poetical with no use for poets
