Poets Don't Have To

Poets don't have to be erudite.
Poets don't even have to be clever.
Poets need not resort to rhyme,
Tho' some seem to lean on it forever.

Poets find fresh images in the familiar,
They illuminate an object so mundane,
Capture the newness in chosen words,
To help some few of us just stay sane.

William's Whimsical Words:

Present company excluded.
