The haughty muse     [rubai]

They say that the trove of poetry
          resembles a sweetheart's kiss
whoever presumes its mastery
              a sorry imposter is
what she of her own desire bestows
            is pleasure beyond compare
while swaggering of a braggart goes
            how far with a haughty miss?
