Dear friends,
This passionate forum has been such a learning experience for me. I really don't know much about poetry, just started writing verses in July. But in reading your poetry, I feel the essence of what poetry is, how it changes an experience or thought or a dream into a song that captures the soul. And so I got up this morning and wrote this little poem as a thank you to all of you for your enlightenment. Sorry I couldn't meantion all of you by name, but you are all in the poem.
Elizabeth

OH, PASSIONATE POET!

Oh, Passionate poet! Write a verse to soothe my weary heart!
With unimagined whims from Robert's diary of life
And let Sy's lyrical wand enhance it with melody so sweet
That we will then forget the words of hatred and of srife

And let Denise pour forth the words too beauteous for our eyes
Sprinkle it with love from Marge's overflowing heart
Let the cowboy ad an earthiness and texture to the song
And let Ruth's unequaled passion be a vibrant part

Let Michael scroll romantic notions on the leaf
May Rebecca force our tears to fall upon the page
Let the gunslinger's magnificence take my breath away
Let Rainbow's moonlit drops of rain fall upon my face

May Angel add sweet angelic voices to the strain
And Balladeer's imagination weave the story to be told
And all the other passionate poets with pen in hand
Add a touch of wisdom from the bottom of their souls

Then I will take this poetry and read it to the stars
And the stars will show to mankind the truth that it has sought
And Shakespeare will look in envy at the exquisiteness of verse
And God will smile at the perfection of the beauty He has wrought

Thank you and Good Bye,
Elizabeth

Elizabeth, to say you don't know much about poetry is like Hugh Hefner saying he doesn't know much about bunnies! You ARE poetry, Elizabeth. I have read with pure joy everything you have written. Please don't stop..and come back to us when you can. God bless.

Elizabeth....you have granted us immortality. What a fine gift you bestow upon us and yourself with this beautiful tribute to the poet's yearning. I think WE are the ones who should have tears in our eyes. Thank you Dear Poetess.

Harrisburg could work! But it would have to be on the weekend for me, as I can't get off from work during the week. (darn it) I think it's about a 2 hour drive from Philadelphia? Not sure, maybe 2 1/2. Sounds like a plan in the making!
