I have read your poem A poet, I Am. I resonate with it entirely. I agree also that every poet has a style that's very unique and perculiar to him/her. Your voice in this one was quiet engaging. You are really yourself in the stanzas that talked about the words that you will use to weave great ryhmes, meters, etc. Great offering Dorothy. Keep writing.
