Its doggerel verse: a poetic denial by Stella M. Turk MBE

I did tell Jayne
But all in vain..
I’m not a poet.
I’m ‘one who will do
To swell a rhyme or two*
But not a poet.
I’m a merchant of rhyme
About space and time t’
Never a poet.
Call me versifier
Call me rhymester
Alas, no poet.
A crystallised thought
Carefully wrought
I wish it was poetry!
