Roguish, dashing, a winsome smile Verve, panache, a unique style Wit sharp like the keenest blade A mind that can’t be stopped nor stayed A way with words, full of flair Going where no-one else may dare Summoning smiles or drawing tears Funnelling thoughts and feelings fierce Channelling into vibrant verse Brazen, daring, vastly diverse […]
