Preserve writing time: a poem by Janet Muirhead Hill

Oh, the distractions a writer can find
When novel ideas don't spring to the mind.
Better to sit in the chair and think
Than to leave the room for another hot drink.

Writing gets done when you stay at a task
Not going for coffee or even a flask
Sorting paper clips or posting on line
Should not be a part of one's writing time.

Be true to your designated creative hour
By keeping it sacred, giving it power.
While even a little writing each day
is better than none, it's still fair to say,

All of those other tasks surely can wait.
You have with your muse an important date.
Allow her soft whisper to speak to your soul
If you want to reach your professed writing goal.

Dear Anonymous,
I'm not a lawyer and a I don't know, but I don't think titles (names) are copyright-able, so you're probably okay.
