How To Write Poetry, As Written by a Master

The fragments of a sunny mind

Coalesced in humble station

Do take images clear and true

To merge by obfuscation.

Meter and alliteration,

Thesaurus ad infinitum;

The poet utilizes these

As his poems, he does write ’em.

What once was green and white

Is basil and alabaster

If indeed the poetry you find

Is scripted by a master.

With these prerequisites complete

Thus finished is the poetic feat,

But resist that tempting lure.

Add a few more stanzas to be sure.
