Born Not Made

It is said about poets that they are born not made
And their published words from memory never fade
And though good poets are not uncommon great poets are few
You may say to this do tell us what is new
The great men and women poets though long deceased in their words living today
True greatness takes centuries for to fade away
With their gift of words happiness to many they do bring
Without poets there would not be songs for to sing
And though few poets have been known for to make the top grade
Every writer is needed in the wordsmith trade
Every novelist, playwright and poet contributes to literature in their own way
Though few very few seem to make writing pay
And though so few of them have been honored in a street parade
It is true about poets they are born not made.
