Sonnet: Misjudge Him Not, O Critic - Poem by Dr. A.Celestine Raj Manohar M.D.,

Go to hell, ye critic who tries in vain,
A poet’s love-affair to unravel;
His sensuous sex details- to pry insane;
From his own poems composed, a marvel.

Remember thou, the poet’s a Creator!
And with time, turns a literary Wizard;
In the art of painting words, a Master;
Who can write even about a lizard!

Oh, denigrate not, man of such greatness,
With silly conjectures, thine assumptions;
Mar not his name with acts of carelessness,
Belittling his work beyond redemption.

Oh, let the man in each poet remain!
And judge his art for art’s sake, sans disdain.
