The Gift of One's Time

Geniuses are unique and rare, a kind
unto themselves who are led by Godís
divine inspiration and powers of mind,
women and men whose gifts defy the odds.

Like Byron, some possess gifts of poetry;
others, like Mozart, musical composition;
and some achieve feats of artistry,
creatively shocking the dull and unrefined.

The gifts of genius are meant as fine tools,
empowered and bestowed by the Nine Muses
to create art and to exalt lifeís fools, ó 
to uplift them to more ennobled uses.

So, if oneís genius be not in this rhyme,
then offer the fool the gift of one's time.

This is well-crafted. I mostly enjoyed the turn, the volta, in the concluding couplet. That was touche!
