It's Closing Time on yet another year
And an Old Friend is thinking of one without peer
With hopes that this pen somehow Finds A Way
To convey all the joy I wish for your Birthday

From your Spiral Pages comes such poetry
That seeing your posts gives morning, glory
My mental ground fog disappears without trace
For opening your work brings a sudden grace

To the dullest of days - I click and into my hand
Pours the heart and soul of a Utility Man
Each word is a Gift, so It Puzzles Me
How you can doubt you're best in this Family

Sharing a Tangerine and your Orange County Snow
You color our world with A Personal Rainbow
Then say you write of Just Ordinary Things
Yes - like Stars In The Grass, moonbow and starsing

I hope you continue to write without pause
I Will Be There, waiting for your work Because
I find Everything I Came For in your every line
Ed, As a person and poet, you're finer than fine!

...and I am thankful

Happy Birthday, my friend... May it be the best ever!!

A very happy, albeit belated birthday greeting, wish and hug, Ed!  I'm sorry I'm bringing up the rear [well, someone has to!] but I've been away from the computer these last three days.

My best to you! Hope you had a wonderful day!

A very sincere thanks to all of you who've joined me in wishing Ed a wonderful birthday - I hope his celebration is still continuing and every moment is a happy memory in the making! *S*

My special thanks to nakdthoughts, Enchantress, Marge, Verbena, Trillium and latearrival for their kindness towards my efforts. *S* I knew there was no chance of doing him justice... but I had to try... thank you!!!

As most of you know or have guessed... the bolded words are titles of poems Ratleader has posted... for while it isn't in The Cards for me to share his talent, I think his work is pure gold ... this is simply my attempt to pay homage and offer Pencilled Thanks to him for sharing his talent with us. *S*

Happy Birthday, dear Ratleader... and many, many more!!!

Well -- as usual I wander off into the ether at just the wrong time -- in this case a month of time, if you were to search it.....

I come back to find this, and friends, as warm a reception as a man could wish for, and more than I earn.

Bless you, friends, people like you are gold to me, purest gold....and you, Suthern lady, are somewhere out there beyond gold....as everyone but you knows so very well.
