Becoming a Poet


The first poem made me sigh
The second poem was worth a try

The third poem made me a poet
It was somehow good and I know it

The fourth poem made me renowned
Because of its excellence, I was crowned

The fifth poem was one of its kind
It left the others all behind

Then, poetry became like water
My whole life it did alter

Poem of the Day

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
