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

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —
Who'd toil'd, and seen no holiday,
For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
