The unincorporated community of Poetry, Texas is co-located in Kaufman, Rockwall, and Hunt Counties and is situated at the intersection of Farm to Market Roads 986 and 1565. It was originally called Turner’s Point, and a school and post office were both established in 1858. It was later renamed Poetry after a local shopkeep, Maston Ussery, said that springtime in the area reminded him of a poem. The post office closed in 1905 and the services were consolidated with Terrell.
