Robert William Buchanan

A long dead poet well worthy of recall
Robert William Buchanan first saw light in Caverwall
Of him it can be said with words he had a way
His  poems outlived him and are widely read today
By many literarry critics rated as a major poet
He remains as a writer worthy of literary note
In his lifetime he never became financially well off though he  knew of widespread fame
And in the Literary World his is a well known name
His works i have  known of since i was a boy
And his poems to me remain as a source of joy
He was an asset to the wordsmith trade
He was a poet and poets are born not made
Though since he died one hundred plus eleven years have gone
His legacy of words today lives on.
