''The muse inspires his inner poet''
The muse inspires his inner poet:--
when moved by divine breath, he composes
poems of three quatrains and one rhymed couplet
with ease;--so we lavish him with roses.
Fourteen iambic lines, five beats per line...
he strings together like beads on a cord
forming verses so resoundingly fine.
So we extol him and mean ev'ry word.
His sonnet's warm and passionate intent
is lovelier and much more temperate
than kisses which are amorously sent.
(Even Petrarch himself was ne'er so great!)
No doubt, his budding skills as sonneteer
make the Bard of Avon shed a wet tear!
