To run through a rhyme like Balladeer can
and bring out topics like the ocean has sand
never one piece alike its close brother
only from Balladeer; there can be no other.

Oh Balladeer, you’re a balladeer true
there is no one who can put words to ‘puter like you
Can you teach us? your students who stand in silent awe?
Or are you a will’o’the wisp? A misty fog in the draw?

Are you really authentic? Or just computer generated?
Can you be seen in the physical? Or something a machine created?
You post so many new topics, it’s true!
Oh Balladeer, teach us Sir, how to be ‘almost’ like you!

Your wonderful words make me happy inside,
To belong to the Forums does fill me with pride.
Your point, well-intentioned, is not actually valid,
There is no need for "sir". Call me 'deer. Drop the "ballad'.
We're all balladeers, though we use different names
And, because we're all poets, we are all just the same.

Thank you, Sunshine, for your wonderful words.

Sunshine, Great job with this one. I have always tried to write one to tribute him too, but I could never get the words right. He is definetly a poet of up most standing.
