Today the poet writes a poem would also be correct!

I think "poet" is more on "poeta" than on "vates".

It marked "hymn" as incorrect. I guess that's what comes of only reading late- antique and medieval Latin.

I submitted, "The poet writes a poem today" to be accepted as correct.

Just curious, what is the nominative case for "carmen"?
