Hardened Poets

entry picture

Neither cold night nor seasonal change

on the turning Earth dismays or hampers them


Veterans of words hold fast in all weathers

Never retreating, ever writing victories


Impassioned by an urgent inner voice

They hold fast to their poetic purpose


Drawing strength from years, they fight on

Never dimmed or surrendering to silence.

The term was created at our meeting on Monday. While numbers were thin, hardened poets turn up whatever the weather.

Captures the dedication rather well, the more you throw at them, the harder they dig in.
