To whom it may concern

She is a nymph behind a wall,
Forever wide, forever tall.
A nereid of poetic shade,
A maid made of special suede.

She came to me on special words
Exquisite like some special birds.
And I was struck to quiet numb
By her words to quick succumb.

And I wondered at her mind,
A very, very special kind.
That seemed to draw a special bow,
Of unique wisdom that I know.

And now I dream forbidden things
From a wells, forbidden spring.
And know not how to treat this gleam,
This lovely, lovely wicked dream.

For she lives behind a wall.
Forever wide, forever tall.

Sy,
Never ceasing to amaze
Please don't cease poetic blaze
Lightening my troubled days
Elizabeth

Elizabeth,
Only the suns forevers grace
Can warm inside forevers place
It's only that, I swear an oath,
It's only that, that warms them both.
Mike,
I'm glad you like.
Hoot,
Thank you I really enjoy your comments.
Nan,
You tell me???
Martie,
I do confess I am.
Pepper,
It's rarely I show another, thank you.

Nay dear friend, she's what she seems,
while living quietly in front of screen
where she may peruse your tender words
that fly at her soft, like birds.

And it's your mind she adores, as is your heart
and she'll not succumb to tearing it apart,
but let it live, for live it must
she'll not part you from that which you trust.

But go, dream, and if you like, scheme
a play, a tribute to what may seem
daunting, but not, for it's all in your mind,
there to be yours, whenever it you shall rewind.

Sunshine
Name of Sunshine, you should know
It's said just sunshine warms the soul
A lighted screen is just a screen
A poet's dream is just a dream
Sunshine is the one who knows
A rose is only just a rose

Sunshine,
Thank you so much for the wonderful poem.
The sunshine that you define
Is a type of concubine.
Elizabeth,
And forever is the toll
That fills the beggers bowl.

Forever is a never word
Whose final song is never heard
And so forever I've preferred
To never use this never word

Justblue,
Never is a good word
Depends on how it is heard.
Its use is a suppositive,
Negitive or positive.
WhtDove,
Forbidden thing can be the joy of life.
Elizabeth
Forever is a poets tool.
And is not bound by any rule.
Explaining something of a theme,
The summation of a dream.

Forever is a long, long time.
And I want to be there.
Seymour, this is lovely.
It captures a spirit that seems elusive,
but is not.

Sy,
If never is the negative,
Then ever is the posistive
Ever is the dream alive
Ever will the dream survive
Dream is truth and truth is real
Truth is really how you feel

Liz,
The truth of never, eternal night,
Drop the n and you have the light.
without the one the other can't be,
It helps to write an epopee.

Sy
Quite brazen on your part, I say
Throwing unknown words my way
This thesaurus - grabbing little poet
So disadvantaged and you know it
Scrambling and nearly crying
Dictionary pages flying
But in the end your epopee
Has helped to soothe my ennui

I think I would ask your wit to view.

Suits him well romantic notions
Floating o'er forbidden oceans
Words sublime of gentle love
To soothe the gentle mourning dove
Elizabeth
