English sonnet on the nature and purpose of genius.
A genius is a special kind indeed:
he or she is a creature of the mind
who goes where breaths of inspiration lead
like mythic Muses on a Grecian wind;
some have the gift of poesy like Keats
and some the gift of music like Mozart;
some pen pastorals of farms, fields and sheep
while others write refrains that move the heart.
The divine gift of genius is a tool
conferred by one's high Muse to create art, 
music and science to ennoble the fool 
in every tribe of which we are a part. 
      But if your genius be not in this rhyme,
      then share the greater "genius" that's your time.
