To Poetry and Poets

I’m writing as a novice, really
3 years Mostly in April
When I think of it, it sounds kind of silly
Quatrains, you often mimic as peril
Oh poets, I haven’t been a reader of you
Nor Austin, Yeats, and Millay
I know no works of Angelou
Joyce just throws my brain away
 I like rhyming words, they become my addiction
Wandering thoughts aimlessly seem
 To fit in metaphoric description
 And touches my soul as in a dream
A soliloquy sometimes can cause
 Much hesitation to my untrained mind
 I seem to only see the flaws
But it would be worse if were to get behind
So I’ll read what others have to say
I’ll keep on writing as the month wears on
I guess this one is addressed to the Quatrain
 Maybe try a lune next time around
(Don’t know what happened, I couldn’t get it to separate stanzas)
