Your rhymers are impeccable, not a single, dot dah dot dah out of place. Even shortening memories, to mem'ries to make the sylable count fit.
Everytime you treat us to one of your beautiful poems, they become workshops for all to learn by, and for future students of the writing arts to marvel, and study over.
And not just the technical perfection either at all, the content is so rich and meaningful, nothing forced whatsoever just to make it work, and fit. You have that rare talent to find the words, out of all them out there, to seem like they were born to stand together, side by side, in this arrangement, to not only tell their story, but to, sing it, melodiously as well.
I started out writing rhyme exclusively, and always loved the challenge that you have so perfected in works of art like this, but, I crossed over, to the dark side, of freestyle, with all of its own unique advantages.
When I read a poem like this, it just takes me back to my roots, and reminds me how fun the puzzle of writing can be with rhyme.
To write something so substantial and harmonius both at the same time.
Wonderful, wonderful piece of work here that you should be so proud of.
I will always remember this haven as the place where I really got my scribblin chops, reading great rhyming poets, like you, and Balladeer, and Toe, and Long John and many, many others, as well as all the other wonderful writers here who write in their own exclusinve style.
Thank you for being such a big part of this place. We all owe you and many others so much for always being here, and providing us with this great little place that has stood the test of time, when so many other things we used to count on, have fallen by the wayside.
Sorry for the novel
