To Versify In Certitude

To versify in certitude
Requires a certain attitude
Adherence to emancipation
Say vale, to litany and dictation

To versify in certitude
Is a gift sent from The Muse
To maintain Her Love and Grace
These little changes, a poet must make;

First and foremost, be in love
Extolling songs sang by the doves
Second step, renounce pretences false
Treat fame and money, with nonchalance

Third step, remain ye independent
As the progenitors of Bard descendants
Fourth step, prize personal honour due
With mettle betake, a stalwart hue

Last and fifth, be fluent, with poet`s putty
Make the English language, one`s constant study
Baulk to 'rules', the prose behest
Write with heart, for it knows best
