               My verse that’s somehow metaphysical
               I do in the tradition of John Donne,
               Aiming to give you something choice to mull 
               Perhaps enlightening, or just for fun.

               My favorite topic is that very Mind
               By which all such inventions are conceived,
               With which the poet’s brain must be aligned
               So something valuable may be retrieved.

               The Cosmic Plenum is the very Source
               Of all such human creativity,
               To which ambitious authors need recourse
               For composition of their poetry,

                    Yet anyone who would invent what’s new
                    Must court that Muse who’s aptest to pursue.
