Poot was a poet who grew up on a farm in Abtswoude, a couple of kilometers south of Delft. He wrote many poems for special occasions. Reinier Boitet, the printer who published Poot's volumes of poetry, includes several of them in the short biography of Leeuwenhoek in Boitet's Beschryving der Stadt Delft.

The Digitale Bibliotheek voor de Nederlandse Letteren (DBNL) has a complete list of resources about Poot's life and work.

The portrait on the right of Poot at 30 was painted by T. van der Wilt and engraved by J. Houbraken.
