A poet who is truly respected
may not be the most brilliant cited
nor number one in the recent survey
yet someone whose mind best convey.
A poet who is a creative critic
may not be someone who is prolific
neither gives comment that is stupor
yet the one who inspires as a mentor.
A poet who has a heart
may not be the most beloved
or the most decorated with accolade
yet the one who touches others life.
Yes a poet who expresses passion
may not be the most romantic
or the most adorable writer
yet gain respect…a poet!
