A Poet

A poet is a nut, writing words of wisdom and humor.
A poet is a scholar, or is that a rumor?
A poet is a dreamer, and that's for real.
A poet is probably needing a good hot meal.
A poet will write all the songs that we sing,
will probably mention a few favorite things.

A poet makes time for the good things of life.
To see the sunset, to cancel the strife,
To gather no moss, to feel the rain,
To walk in the sun, to live not in vain,
To write it all down, the good and the worse,
Memories of life in the form of a verse.
