(Well, a little out of character for myself, I decided to post an ad on the yahoo personal ads in the format of a poem...I found it kind of funny, so thought I'd share)

Poet Seeks Her Muse

Iím a caring woman
With an angelís face
But my lonely heart
Has an empty space

Iíve nearly given up
Said, ďWhatís the use?Ē
For where can a poet
Find herself a muse?

Iím looking for friendship,
Trust, and romance
Someone who cares,
That will take a chance

I enjoy quiet walks,
Sunsets, forests, and streams
Iím searching for someone
To share all my dreams

I like slow dancing,
Hugs, candles and wine
But I donít like games
So donít feed me a line

A brain is a must
And personality too!
Honesty and compassion
Does this sound like you?

If you think that maybe
Youíre the one for me
Just drop me a line
And we both shall see

Why thank you Dragon and Walt...I figured as many laughs as I get from reading these personals, it was time I gave a few of my own.

Amusing, to say the least. Nice to meet you, by the way, what with the finicky ICQ fizzling this morning.

This is wonderful! Not only will you get the standard replies, but you'll get to see if they like poetry! Afterall, what would you want with a man who doesn't like to read poetry!

I REALLY liked this one.
I am sure were I to read an ad like this somewhere it would peak my interest. Good job!

Angelic face and caring heart,
And poetess, to boot!
With all your qualities, m'dear
Who wouldn't give a hoot?
