Listening to every heart
Somewhere around three years ago, I think I started counting,
for here in Passions' Poetry, the numbers were a-mountin'...
and the final numbered count, if I think I remember straight,
was a grand 2,000 poets who came to celebrate!
For Poetry has died, it was rumored among the lines
but here in Passions, with 2000, we said it was doin' fine!
It was not dead, we disagreed, and shook our inky pens!
then laid down lines and lines and lines, then we did it all again.
Now, today, this wondrous day, we're 7,000 members strong...
until a sweep, a mighty sweep, and Ron clears out the throngs!
For some have come, and some still go, a revolving door for sure...
but in the archives remain their songs, still sounding clear and pure.
on building a site for Poets
though some may go, surely,
more have stayed...
