I saw today
When I logged on,
Nine-Ninety-Nine
Fine posters strong -

Great poets hail
From every land -
Merely one more
Would make a GRAND!!

MissMilli joined
With FanciNess -
She'll be the bane
Of NanciNess.

One thousand in
Just ninety days -
This coterie
Is Passions' way.

Great friends we've made
Both near and far,
On ICQ
And Messenger.

How wonderful
It is to see
Passion's Prolific
Poetry.

Our thanks that Ron's
Digital embrace
Has built this great
Poetic place.

Now let us ask....
If Ron Carnell
Can rescue Nan
From AOL....???

I've been watching the number of members go up since I've been one, and I think that it really is incredible.

You are my strong melody.
You are my dancing rythm.
You are my perfect rhyme.
And I want to sing forever.
You're my beautiful, my sweet, sweet song.
I will sing again.

It was the Million Poet march
I swear it's true
That many Poets waving their quills
Prismatic lances in the night
"Shove the blotter!"
Their rally cry
Puddle stomping in the reflective pool
As fires crackled in DC's night sky
One Million Poets
Chanting and waving
Parchment and pen
Except for those addicted to keyboards
Who waved their 101's in the air
Slightly concussing passerbys
Confused by the bruhaha
Of One Million Poets
And if any pundit claims
It was only a thousand
I'll write something
REALLY scathing
And post it on the net

One thousand hands to pen their poems
Two thousand eyes to read 'em
Ten hundred poets in this home
And one great guy to lead 'em.

Thank you, Ron

One thousand members
at this site?
That seems so much!
You sure that's right?

In ninety days,
it seems absurd!
One thousand smithers
of the word!!

What made them join?
What made them post?
Could it be something
with our host?

Just ninety days
a thousand strong!
All I can say
is thank you Ron!

It doesn't seem all that long ago that I came on board somewhere around 230. At this rate 2,000 by the year 2,000? I wonder how many members are truly active? Any way, thanks Ron for this home full of wonderful people and words.

Well done MissMilli. Alicat... that was slick!

In the beginning there was one poet
whose soul was strong and true
he threw open wide his loving arms
and then the one was two.

Word spread quickly of his place
a home for poets to rest
and in coming together in passion
weve surely become the best

As we increase in quantity
may our quality stay the same
without ego, without pretense
without glory, without fame

A tribute fair to Ron it seems
is just a beginning chorus
how can we thank him enough
for all that hes done for us

Though we cannot make you guru
or proclaim you deity
Ron, dear friend, we honor you
for a home to post our poetry.

A THOUSAND posters?
I'm but one,
And I'm just here
To have some fun!

MissMilli, please
Now don't you panic
You are simply
Schizophrenic!!

'Tis nice, though, you
Do toast these posts
And GRAND it is
We've a fine host!!

OH me, OH my, a thousand times!
One thousand poets came to rhyme
and hang out in this Passions place?
And none have seen the other's face?

T'is quite absurd, or don't you think?
My PERIscope detects a wink!
A smile becomes my PERIsol.
One thousand poets. Is that all?

Come hither poets, join us here!
Bring heart, bring soul, or just bring beer!

I haven't been a member long
but I've enjoyed this forum's song
and to our host my accolades
for putting poets on parade!
All of you so kind and creative
have made me feel just like a native~
As my thanks, this little poem
you've made me feel like I am home!




1,000 more please!

Oh, but I surely did -
I saw another's face;
Just seems IRonic now,
Not sure who won that race

From jetties on the shore
Through all the rocks and dunes
To seaside restaurants
Into the men's restroom.....

We had to check the rolls
From bottom or the top
My GoodNess it just seems
This race may never stop....

Great work...great tribute....to a well deserved Ron......

I can only add one thought,
To this poem MissMilli brought,
There's one mistake, I think she's wrong,
She said there's one thousand poets strong.

She's really only off by one,
And that's really not that bad,
There's only nine-hundred-ninety nine,
And one damned old Toerag!

Members have doubled since I've been here
Admiring the poems, harassing Balladeer. *G*
Though I'm sure at times we're quite a pain
This forum has been an incredible gain
In my life. So my thanks to Ron
And to my fellow members.... Write on!

Onward, we shall defeat our oppressers.. Oh, wrong piece.. Wow, when Netpoets stick together they can accomplish anything.. I wish that I got the chance to see you in DC, but that's not going to happen this year.. the Netpoets will just have to hold another DC trip for all of the new people that we have here.. Nan, AOL is an addiction.. Don't get sucked in.. One thousand strong.. I remember when this forum was put up..
I hope that we stay this strong..

Love,
Lady
