Poem: To an Impecunious Poet by J. S.

| No TrackBacks
Oh, sigh not for the power of kings,
   For transient is a royal crown;
The truth of which a poet sings
   Through every age is handed down.

And sigh not for the wealth of gold,
   Could gold unlock the secret door
To that wide world which you behold?
   Could king command your magic lore?
