Poetry 201 Day Six: Hero, Ballad, Anaphora – And He Is


And He Is

Some think he’s an Angel

Some think he’s a Saint

Some think he’s a genius

With wood and some paint.

Some think he’s a Wizard

Some think he can fly

Some think he can travel

With the blink of his eye.

Some want to believe in him

Some believe he’s a lie

Some believe they can count on him

Some don’t even try.

To me he’s a hero

Just a regular guy

With a heartful of kindness

As big as the sky.

-Pam Tanzey

This poem was written for Writing 201:Poetry. The prompt today is Hero, the Form is a Ballad and the device is Anaphora (a-NAH-fra)  means the repetition of the same word (or cluster of words) at the beginning of multiple lines of verse in the same poem. Yay, this time I was able to do all three!

Thanks for stopping by!
