The Poet

A poet tries hard

to find meaning

in the thoughts

that he is dreaming.

To put them into words

then down on paper

before they can disappear

just like vapour.

Many a time he will

throw them away

convinced that no one could care

what he has to say.

But every now and then

he may strike gold

and write something

that people may behold.
