Practice (II)

I've been writing poems for 40 years.
Sometimes, readers are perplexed,
and sometimes, they're enchanted.
And rarely, through some miracle
of chance and endless practice,
the words take flight, or dance, or sing,
or make the ghost of Dylan Thomas weep.

Well stated Thomas. I especially like the phrase “the words take flight, or dance, or sing”
