When poetry began

 Poetry began, if I may so surmise
 When beauty touched the soul and fell upon the eye
 'Twas then we had  the notion
 To write from our hearts and express our deepest emotions

 And thus the poet was born
 His inner thoughts flowing from his quill
 His words rising like the morning sun
 As his muse kept growing still

 And  when the evening came
 And orange skies appeared as flames
 The poet's quill was not yet done
 But rose with Luna, to set the sun

    This great poem is masculine in enchantment, and has a superb mystical quality that all Troubadours realize Joseph. A Poet's work is never done my friend, thank you for honoring our Craft with your genuine passion for Poetry. J.A.B.
