The Consummate Poet ( a poem of inspiration)

The sun, its flower...
The sun, its flower...
Ode to a sunset...the evening hour.
Ode to a sunset...the evening hour.
Tribute to a dawning...in morning...

A marvelous word revealer...and such a literary card shark,

This writer, his abundant adjectives, metaphorical, or of the stark,

Wheeler-dealer...a moodmaker, and our own attention stealer,

The poignant messenger, of his most inner feelings, revealer.


Pirates of old, their secrets unfold, cutting like a sharpened sword,

A golden treasure chest, in ours to read, and is our just reward.

Words of warm tenderness, as those of a soul searching desire,

Grand revelations shared for all humanity, no more, to conspire.


As consummate weavers of those most mysterious of fine tales,

The marvelous of the story deceivers, so cast their strange spells.

A magnetic attractor, good will benefactor, all believe in him, so well,

As for whom the bell tolls, is for us, as he cajoles, is his story to tell.


As a talented male, or by his equal, female, a poetic gift of gab, divine,

An artistic demonstration, not exaggeration, in every poem's design.

Poems to rhyme, or prose just as fine, all of their works we may read,

Each, in spontaneity, or a calculated refrain, their lines, all do succeed.
