He writes such perfect words, that thrill my ears
Or cut straight to my very soul with tears
With ease his heart and pen so often fly
Describing all that falls upon that poets eye
Oh why, do my words wrestled all in vain
Yet found limping with leaden feet remain
On crutches rooted hard fast to the earth
Uselessly floundering for all their worth
Do I not see the truth he sees and seeks
Or speak the language that he speaks
I only know that my words all fall flat
That his are good and that my friend is that

I'm not sure how's it done, but I suspect you will say so...

You give but little when you give of your possessions. It is when you give of yourself that you truly give.

Thank you hoot, PDV and Rainbow.

Yes, I admit your general rule. That every poet is a fool:
But I myself may serve to show it. That every fool is not a poet.

writer51,
The words are good, the rhyme is good, the poem is good. Enjoyed the read.
