“Great Poets”

What makes a poet great, I ask, beyond his point of view?

Perhaps how he takes tragedy unjust, and turns it into fuel,

To rev the engine up for change and run it til’ breakthrough?

And such as past generations die, paving the way for new;

that old engine gets dusted off…and once again refueled.
