Poet - 'A Poet's Worth'

Poet—Your words,
Like garments of
Gold and silver thread,
Shimmering in sunlight
Or bathed by moonlit glow,
When shed—
Leave me breathless,
Caught up in their naked truth
And timeless flow—
And I become aware
Of nothing else.

    I don't think so Andie. I never told David Williams it was written with him in mind.
