The Mightiest of Poet's Still

Hark! The mighty sage’s quill, Leaves remnants of genius, still. Reminding me of richer days, Where wines could really come to age; And gods among the people dwelled, In works of master poet’s felled. Where aerie tales and thoughts of fancy, Awaken something everlasting. The faded thoughts of vestments tore, Through mournful tales of days of yore. I bore inquisitive insight, To mouth a masterpiece delight; Reciting thoughts from Edgar Poe, In poetry and foul-like prose. And as I muttered, “Nevermore”, I pondered on his lost Lenore; A femme who captivated thought, His inspiration to the plot. And in his wording wizardry, So haunted by his imagery, Moves me to expound wanton lyrics To every soul who dares to hear it. And with immense humility -- No pen shall cite as good as he.
