Listening to every heart
I had the biggest delight today
twice in fact, two thrills came by
one asking permission, my poem to copy
another a request to re-post, oh my!
I know this would have never happened
had I not been allowed to post free
and while comments mean quite a lot
these two little requests made me see
that this place, this wondrous place
holds a space in all of our hearts,
where we may laugh, and love and give;
where our written words may forever live.
The moment made magic by those little requests
as if a volume was printed, again and again ~
and to you all I now share this bequest
never, ever, ever, never put down your pen!
