Occasional Verse

Many years ago I showed some of my verse to a famous professor of poetry at a well known University in Melbourne. He dismissed them as Vers d’Occasion and of minimal worth. (Scorn always sound so much better in French, don’t you think?) I read some of his work and could make nothing of it. Therefore I deduce that I am not a poet; and these verses are not poems. From that day forward I have referred to my stuff as “Occasional Verse”.
