I’m the kind of a poet who likes to write
In meter and in rhyme.
That doesn’t mean that all I write
Will sound the same each time.

Some words I’ll use are “little.”
Some words I’ll use are “long.”
Some words rhyme in the middle.
Some almost sound like a song.
My mind in verse does concentrate;
My kind of verse “passé.”
I find, in verse, I meditate
On thoughts I have each day.
I understand if this is not
What you would like to hear.
Hurt my feelings you will not.
Of this you needn’t fear.
But if you’re tired of reading prose
Without a rhyming word,
Then do read mine, for I suppose,
It’s the most rhyming verse you’ve heard.
Now that I’ve told you what I am
And the way I like to write,
If you still take time to read a bit,
May it give you some moments delight!
