I am the wordsmith, poet and forger of hymns

My pencil is my hammer, and words my steel and iron

And with this I create my art as I whim

I am an artist, with pencils, paper is What I ply

No need of colours, mixes and wheels

no need of paint have I.


One day, at tongs and hammer I wrote

Until a rather silly fellow came and quote

“Why sir, what a fool you must be! ”

“ To waste such time on something so carefree! ”

And upon hearing this I looked up and laughed

“ And what other sort of thing should I craft? ”

Weapons and murder with edges that end lives

or perhaps tool to harvest onions, lettuce, potatoes and chives?

O maybe a forger of steel armoured plates

or hinges to guard a kings iron gates

No! I am the wordsmith, and pen is my sword

And with it my grasp I am truly a lord

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
