To My Wife’s Grand Niece, Sidney Rose (Who Wants to Be a Poet) –
The World Needs More Poets
I heard from a number of people,
How you like to make your verses sing
And how you like to arrange the words
So your stanzas all seem to ring.
You select the perfect words
And seek a friendly rhyme,
In your playful child’s garden
Where flowers bloom all the time.
And in those magic moments
Contained within your rhymes
I hope you keep your happy self
And share her all the time!
Writing poetry is a gift
That comes from heaven above,
Your rhymes can be your messages
To everyone you love.
