To Write A Poem - Poem by Randy McClave

Writing poetry is like making wine;
It must first mature over time,
Sit down as though you're ready to dine
Should it be free verse, or should it rhyme.
Get drunk from it with pencil in hand
It comes from the soul and not the mind,
Your creation will be your own written brand
It will open the eyes, to those who are blind.
Take a couple quick sips before you write
Become intoxicated with the verse,
Take it in with pleasure and then delight
Then as with wine; slowly immerse.
Write your poem lazily as it will age
As it has leisurely fermented and cultivated,
Now it becomes words upon a page
A poem from refining, you have created.

    Excellent poem, nicely written.
    Its the truth, through time, well
    written poems will age like wine.
