Are You a Patron of the Arts?

"Are You a Patron of the Arts?"

Are you a patron of the Arts? 
How do you about classics feel 
Of literature -- do Thoreau 
And Emerson appeal? 

Lord Byron? Austin? Dickinson? 
Dorothy Parker? Or the Bard? 
What if you'd opportunity 
Give one of these some small reward 

Whilst they yet living, breathing 
And earnestly struggling be? 
Please take a glance at what my readers 
So far think of me 

And understand we poets see
But microscopic income
Our blood and sweat, our tears and laughter,
Writ in verses, from

Think of this homeless poet
Who will from funds which you have sent
Gain from her starkly homeless life
A little comfort’s merriment

And feel, this very moment,
How satisfying be
The linking of our names in eyes 
Of far posterity

 - Ana Daksina -
