‘Creative craftsmans sweet-sounding poetry’


‘…I said, “A line will take us hours maybe;

Yet if it does not seem a moment’s thought,
Our stitching and unstitching has been naught.
Better go down upon your marrow-bones
And scrub a kitchen pavement, or break stones
Like an old pauper, in all kinds of weather;
For to articulate sweet sounds together

Is to work harder than all these…”‘

Adams curse,W.B Yeats

This stanza reflects the amount of work and dedication that goes into producing sweet sounding poetry or great literary work. ‘The creative artist, imposes order upon the chaos of his material by a process of elimination and  Organisation’. Sometimes I miss the part of organisation or even the elimination because I have so many ideas that I want to put out but, In the end my work would not sound polished or refined but actually like a lunatic. Someone with so much to say but in the process nothing is heard because he cant communicate it properly. Another factor is the fact that people take writing weather it be an article or a poem like its the most easiest thing to write and that a writers is not sometimes given enough credit. I know that personally when I write or I have a block my friends would look at me as if I am crazy one actually said, ‘writing is not rocket science I don’t understand your difficulty’. Never treat a writer weather they are a journalist or author of a book as if there job is not as hard as other professions, because truly a writer is a craftsman and also a creative artist always trying to make their work appear as a organic structure.
