A fitting tribute from the most precious fan of all, but the admirers are many, and I among them, have learned so much from the master poet. Thank you, dear poet, dear friend for your magnificent verses
And thank you, Michael, for posting this wonderful poem
Love

I, too, am among your admirers. I wish I could say that I have known you for a long time - and that I know you as a friend, but I can't.  What I can say is I recognize your kindness, that you are a gentleman, and that you write the most touching and lovely poetry.  I am honored to know you the bit that I do through your art - thank you for sharing you.

And thank you to your daughter for writing, and sharing, such a loving tribute to you, her father.

WOW! Look what I missed while on vacation.
Faun, A beautiful touching poem for your Dad. We all think the world of him.I only wish I too could say I have met him in person but to read his daily poetry is to have met him. Mike thanks for posting this. latearrival.

I came back to this thread to read some of the further comments. There is such an outpouring of love and adoration for Sir Sonneteer ~ and deservedly so.

I went into the archives to search for one of the poems that I wrote for our beloved Mr. T. and thought I'd repost it here as part of this Seymour love fest.

Bed of Roses
~ Linda L. Dowd ~

Drink the magic of fantasy's store,
In the Land of Forevermore.
Sate your soul in the ecstasy,
Of love, and laughter, and revelry.

O'er troubled bridges, may you leap,
And with the angels ~ may you sleep.
While all is blessed ~ both near and far,
In your land of Shangri-La.

May manna be your food divine,
And nectar brewed to honey wine.
And all you feel, see, think, and do,
Be reflections of the god in you.

May moon and stars shine down on thee,
In your dreams of fantasy.
As you lie in sweet repose,
On petal bed of love's red rose.

Loves 'n hugs 'n angel kisses,
EA

Thank you, Bal... first for posting this... and again for bumping it up today. Both the poems and the pictures bring the taste of bittersweet... sadness at losing him... smiles that we were lucky enough to know him.

Faun - I know Sy treasured this lovely gift you wrote for him. So do we... thank you.

As I think of Sy, I think of all who have loved him ~ those of you on these pages who have written so many loving things about him (and each other).  You are all what makes people like me want to stay at PiP when we first enter these doors.

There is no more fitting time to say that all of you who are on the earlier boards, posting your hearts out, forming friendships that have spanned the years ... well, all of you have made me remain here and bask in the parts of you that you have shared.

Thank you for sharing, for loving and opening PiP to those like me who have wandered in later.

Sy, you are in my heart.

Alison
