My Thanks to Charles L. Weatherford for the wonderful PoetryBase resource.

My Example Poem

My All   (Curtal Long Hymnal Stanza)

I must now be
in total thrall;
demand from me
my all.

I'll give no less,
for when inspired
I know my best's
required.

And if I fail
the lack's my own.
I'll guzzle ale
alone.
