Who Is A Poet

In all sorts of writing our feelings we show
But who is or is not a poet I wouldn't know
For such poetry critics are well paid to judge
Though their task of them I could never begrudge
Those who know of poetry say poets are few
One might say to that tell us something that's new
And though writers are many few do make the grade
Though everyone welcome in the Wordsmith Trade
So many poetical forms in the Human World of today
And that everyone have their own preference seems the human way
On any one subject few seem to agree
And what is poetry to you may not be so to me
And though with words I am one who does like to play
What is or is not poetry is not for me to say.
