The Wordsmith

Twenty six letters
Are all that it takes
For the thousands and thousands
Of words that she makes.

She picks one or two
A dozen or so,
The nub of a poem
And she's raring to go.

That's not quite right,
Finds a good synonym,
This is not what I meant,
Opposite, antonym.

Not to forget
The syllable count,
Add one in there,
Take this one out.

Get all that right
And the rhythm is wrong,
Sort it out and it's
Finished, mais non.

Before any of these
So called, latter stages,
She first needs a subject
To grace those blank pages.

  1. This should go very well in “Master Poet”. Like the chefs you deconstruct and put it all together in creative fashion. WOW. In Swedish we have three more letters but it does not make it any easier.
