A Poet

by louis gander

A poet writes no poems
despite his greatest work -
despite his countless hours
to smooth out every quirk.

Though pray and meditate, we do -
though writing's very fun -
though diligent and gifted,
we can't write even one.

A poem's written long before
a poet lifts his pen -
and sets on paper solemn thoughts
that's given him from Heaven.

For God sends down His blessings,
raining from above -
and He will send His wisdom too,
if we first seek His love.
