Pam Wesely's wrote well of writing and her words fit well my mood.

How to Write a Poem
She knows how to write a poem.
In her lonely lamplight, she scratched down some pointers.
"The subject can be anything, but it must be love.
All good poem must be about love.
Then, you get a technique.
Of falsified emotions,
of fabricated passions,
of lacy synonyms,
of flowery adjectives,
of repeating prepositional phrases,
Everyone needs a technique.
You write like a Dickens.
You avoid dumb chiches.
You emulate Frost, Byron, Shakespeare.
You drop names."
She knew how to write a poem.
She just wondered why no one listened to her.
A lovely Sunday to you all,
