Elusive Poet

No rhyme
	This time.

Re-thought
	Still naught.

Read books
	Got looks.

Brain nap
	A sap?

More rest
	Flunked test.

Online
	Not fine.

Didn’t learn
	Still yearn.

Free verse
	Got worse.

Poet?
	Forget.

Tried hard
	No bard!

Thank you very much, "Shadow..." This one was pure enjoyment to write! :) I do recommend the footle form of poetry. It is rather simple and provides a welcome relief from some of the other highly structured types. Thanks again, and holiday blessings to you and yours!! :) Bartholomew
