Writing is my life.

Without it there is strife.

Words are to be treasured.

Their value weighed and measured.

This task is my great joy.

A red pen my favorite toy.

I'm proud of my creation,

And wish it fondly remembered.

Yet I'm well aware of what I don't know

And won't be thought a pretender.

Praise or critique, hurl what you will,

I do not indulge in pique and correction provides a thrill.

Thanks for the attention

Paid this example of my skill.

Your response is eagerly sought,

Value it, I will.
