How to win a poet’s heart

This is it,
how to make a poet
wither on your hands like leaves in Autumn;

You need caches of beauty,
gallons of creativity
and a bottle of gracefulness.

But here’s is the major ingredient;
allow his works win your heart
cherish every of his lines
ululate them to earth and sky.

Give it to the birds to shriek
let infants growl them
then take it to aquatics to disturb the peace of ocean.

That’s how to cast the spell,
everytime he sees you flying his words
his heart will fly around your paths.
