I must rein in just a bit,
And save the better poems I've writ,
Until I'm better known in here,
Or I'll burn out before its clear,
That I've been writing over time
More than simple words that rhyme.
That once in awhile I've put to pen
Thoughts of who, what, where, and when.
And so I'll pause, and by and by,
People will also realize why.

Thank you for the very nice welcome. Over the years I've become accustomed to "breaking into" a new board or chat room or whatever. I know it takes time and a lot of patience. So I'll just save some of my favorite poems (heh heh heh) until people get to know me. I wasted my poem, The Wind, because I forgot the fundamental rule about being "the new guy:" Wait until people see you are funloving and upbeat. Then hit 'em with something a little deeper.

BTW - I've enjoyed your work, and your comments in my own 'lurking' way *g*

Well, LJA, I must admit
you have humor, just a bit
and I've noticed a little wit
and I'll bet your not long to sit
on your pettles
nor your mettles
but be in fine fettle
TO WRITE A WHOLE BUNCH MORE!

Don't forget to do the PiP thing - read others and comment/critique!
