A free verse poem...
"A Poet Is" by Diana L Crawford

A poet is one who
draws from emotions,
delivering passionate words
that intoxicate another's soul.

A poet is one who
extracts from experience,
giving struggle, pain and
human issues a voice.

A poet is one who
burns the midnight oil,
reaching for inspiration
and transforming it into verse.

A poet is one who
uses their imagination,
creating fantasy worlds
where others may go to dream.

A poet is one who
discerns with compassion,
expressing true wisdom to
a lonely, suffering world.

Thank you, dear poet,
for sharing with mankind
your gift of expression and 
secret well of unique talent.
