NaPoWriMo 2019 – Day 6 – “Forever Painting Passion” by David Ellis – A Found Poem Inspired by “Ode On A Grecian Urn” by John Keats

Hello everybody.

I’m keeping it short and sweet as I segue into Day 6 of National Poetry Writing Month.

The official prompt over at NaPoWriMo HQ today is to write a poem of the possible.

Here is the prompt if you too wish to play along at home.

I myself decided to write another found poem to add to my ever growing found poetry series and my inspiration for this one was “Ode On A Grecian Urn” by John Keats.

You can find the lyrics to that particular classic poem here:-

And finally, here is my own found poem, thank you for reading and hope you all enjoy it! 🙂

“Forever Painting Passion” by David Ellis

Of quietness, of silence
Who express our pursuit to escape
What wild melodies play to the sensual spirit?

Of the bare kiss
Bliss that cannot shed your love
Forever warm and forever painting passion
That leaves a heart burning

These skies, silken, built of marble
With silent eternity, shall remain in beauty
Truth that is all on earth

  1. David, this is my favorite poem among all those I have read from you. Beautiful!

    I remember studying “Ode on a Grecian Urn” at university. It’s one of those poems that stays with you for a long time.

    Well done!
