The poet was a brave young man. He liked exciting adventures and faraway countries.
He was in love with a young woman who loved him too. This woman was clever and beautiful, but she didn't understand the poet and didn't share his interests, so the poet left her to travel to a faraway country. She was very sad and couldn't forgive him for this. When the poet came back, he tried to tell her about his wonderful trip, but she didn't understand him.
The poet had never travelled himself, but he liked to make up stories. One day his little daughter was ill and he wanted to do something nice for her. He took a big book with a picture of a giraffe in it and showed it to his daughter. But the girl wasn't interested in the book. She had already read it. Then the poet wrote a poem and read it to his daughter. The daughter liked the poem, but didn't believe it.
The poet was a very romantic man. He dreamed about faraway countries, mysterious tribes, beautiful animals. He was bored with his ordinary life and bad weather. He was also in love with a woman who didn't love him. She was very proud and the poet wasn't interesting enough for her. He tried to impress her and made up a story about a faraway country and a beautiful giraffe, but she wasn't listening to him. She was thinking about herself, not about the boring poet.
