I Intend To Keep Penning - Poem by Francis Duggan

I never refer to myself as a poet
Nor am I one worthy of literary note
I first started writing when in my life's prime
And I am one who has penned many a rhyme
My worth as a rhymer I always do doubt
But always there's something for to write about
I only repeat here what I've said before
When I say I write for the love of it and nothing more
'Tis true about poets they are born not made
Though everyone needed in the wordsmith trade
Not everyone things of great beauty create
For not everyone as we know are born to be great
As for me I am just an ageing rhyming man
Though I intend to keep penning for as long as I can.
