Hey Ron ol' pal

When I "click" on a thread, all I see are the comments. The original message is a blank blue field

I Copied and pasted the "blank" field to the space below, to show you what I mean, and Lo! and behold, the text showed up!

Odd, huh? It seems I would have to C&P to read the poem....Gads!

Pity, pity the poor, poor poet
Beleaguered by such small request
For want of muse, nay, I shan’t abuse
The request, I promise, O,
How I promise….

But throw me a word, a snippet of
What?  I beseech, no, need to plead with you,
Please, perhaps, a word, perchance, just one,
Something you might make do without,

Something akin to

Melodrama

~*~

So, in compliance
she complied with a response, for that poet
Needed no more of this, this damnable drama,
Oh Horrors, no,
For too long had her song gone unplayed,
Displayed, arrayed, and splayed

Then flattened more emphatically
than the key of she.

“Do with it what you will, but just,
just take it away
from me.”

~*~

Here sits my Thesaurus of all Quotes
Bare of the melodramatic search itself,
Though full of examples before my eye
To be seen, and heard, and felt

But where, Oh Where, the song?

~*~

Ah, now, the song…the drama, they lie within,
And it’s always up to you,
To take a gist and make a moment
Then cast it before our view,

To sing the song, or splay the drama
Or combine both for the very best,
That a poet or painter or bard, or I
Might see life’s melody in this drama’s test.


Thanks to Patricia, for throwing me a word...

Sheesh! I guess this was an "AOL" thing.

All better now! Forget I said anything.

Gads, witch!
