When Is a Poem a Poem?

When is a poem a poem,
When its author says it's so,
When some renowned poet says
“You've got talent, don't ya know?”

When is a poem a poem,
When it has some rhyme or none,
When in its stuffed poetic tux
It's too serious for fun?

When is a poem a poem
And who really can judge it,
But for those who read its words,
And never do forget?

When is a poem a poem
And whose call is it but yours?
Its readers soon will decide
If it will flop or soar.

When is a poem a poem
Besides when it's judged to be,
When readers say they like it,
You‘ve paid your entry fee?

When is a poem a poem,
When a thousand times it's read
By the poet before the press
Or judgments of others said?

Poems are poems when their words,
From start to finish lines,
Express your feelings, your awares,
From you to your readers' minds.
