To A Poet On Rating His Or Her Poem

I do not vote the poems of others
I do not presume to judge
but if you take my breath away
make my heart run fast or beat a little more slow
I will read you again and again
and search your most minute works out
nor say a word to you of agony or ecstacy you stirred within me
but never will I put a number on your work.
