The Poet

A poet tries hard
to find meaning

in the thoughts
that he is dreaming.

To put them into words
and 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 will say.

But every now and then
he may strike gold

and write something
that people may behold.
