Ft. Lauderdale, Fl USA
Your first poem, I remember well, that you had posted here
Overwhelmed the tender heart of this old balladeer.
Uplifting to my soul it was. Of that there is no doubt.
Relentless in my hunger, I began to search you out.
Expressing heart-felt thought in such a quiet, simple way
Thoughts that others run from, you are happy to display.
Outpouring of emotion's not an easy thing to do..
Perhaps it would be, if we wrote as beautifully as you.
Since I've read several works of yours, I've come to realize
Incredibly, there's not one place you try to compromise
Not in your rhyme nor meter - never in your quality
Multiple things that you produced, I wish had come from me.
You are a prime example of the poet I'd like to be
Because everything I read of yours comes out so beautifully.
Our worth has been quadrupled since the day you first appeared.
Of all the poets I admire, I'm glad that you are here.
Keep on writin'....I'll keep readin'!
