How to a Profit, Of a poets mind be made?
Have faith dear poet, unrelenting bard of magick music,
Give no Frank or farthing to the masses
The masses' style is rank and unbecoming.
Develope in a cave, an Hermitage poetical,
Be relentless in pursuit of this, it's yours.
Send draft and winded letter to be published
Market yours and you will be
Unquestioned an you have already been.
Develope to a stature unbecoming to the humans.

furnish poems brought completly
ended, eased, and thought discreetly.
Thus Bards are made and cultivated

Work diligent and patiently
Fear not the massed, the ignorant,
Impaired and always purile,
