Song Of Myself

Rating: 3.2

I was a Poet!
But I did not know it,
Neither did my Mother,
Nor my Sister nor my Brother.
The Rich were not aware of it;
The Poor took no care of it.
The Reverend Mr. Drewitt
Never knew it.
The High did not suspect it;
The Low could not detect it.

Sir Walter Raleigh was a poet but did not know it...I thank God that I know it

This is so amazingly simple and easy to understand. What a difference with poets two centuries later, who write very convoluted.

Still amazingly relevant to modern poets!
