     It takes a word, a phrase, to light the fuse
     That starts a verse and summons up the Muse,
     And then the form keeps offering new cues,
     Presenting fresh material to choose;

     But still it is the intellect that glues
     The pieces random inspiration strews,
     For while Imagination may enthuse,
     It’s Reason that true poets finally use.
