Poetry's Fun - Poem by Patrick Davies

Poetry's Fun,
If the words will run
Off the end of your pen
as you're writing.
Even to rhyme
All of the time
Can really be quite exciting! Possessed by the Muse,
One cannot refuse
To follow wherever she's leading;
But what are your views.
When the Muse doth refuse
To respond to your indigent
pleading? With no Muse to thank
Your verses go blank
And even your rhymes are
appalling!
So pray that she stays
To the end of your days
Or Poet will not stay your calling!
