Authors, you creators of worlds:

William Shakespeare; playwright of love, war, comedy, and tragedy.

Sir Walter Scott; author of knights, archers, and chivalry.

Jane Austen; lonely lover of romantic unlikelihood.

Oscar Wilde; decadent, Hedonist, misunderstood.

Edgar Allan Poe; troubled author, poet of lost, lovely faces.

Douglas Adams; holistic genius of strange cases.

H.G. Wells; leader in fantastic, futuristic imagining.

Ayn Rand; objectivist, atheist, architect of capitalist adventuring.

J.R.R. Tolkien; innovative weaver of the world of humans and hobbits.

Neil Gaiman; spinner of unique tales and sometimes magical misfits.

George Orwell; political satirist, down and out.

Authors, you creators of worlds,

Inspiration, ideas, and doubt.

***This is a poem that I wrote for a class. It is very close to my heart though because it talks about all the things I love about my favorite authors, as well as giving voice to my doubts about my own writing skills.
