''An Arduous Art'' Augmented

Poetry's an arduous art;
it requires skill and meter
and a poet that's awful smart,
or he will tire and teeter.

Poetry's an arduous art;
one must be a trained poet
who writes with love and perfect heart
to create flow and not blow it.

Poetry's an arduous art;
a poet needs to stay sharp,
or his songs will just fall apart
with the pluck of the minstrel's harp.

Poetry's an arduous art;
from inspiration to the final end,
even from the very first start,
a poet's measure should transcend.
