We Are Not All Poets

We are not all poets
Though inwardly we crave
To touch that verbal talisman
With everything we have

Covet-able capstone
Is the poet’s lot
Yet, we are not all poets
In spite of our jot

Ingenious wordsmiths
Far and few between
Inspire the rest of us
To try and try again

We are not all poets
But God pours poetry
In, above, around us
In everything we see
