A Poet Who Needs Poetry More Than It Needs Him


A POET WHO NEEDS POETRY FAR MORE THAN POETRY NEEDS HIM

A poet who needs Poetry far more than it needs him
May still be a poet
A small poet
An unimportant poet
But still somewhere somehow
A soul that sings itself to a few
Words of meaning
And concise occasional beauty.

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;

The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
