Lucy Linus Pigpen Snoopy Sally Charlie
Rerun Shroeder Peppermint Patty Woodstock Marcie
Im sure i'll be crying before this thought is through
They all had big heads but tender hearts
My hero Charles Schulz
I'm not saying so because he died
I always wanted to be a comic
But I'm a poet by trade
A good fair trade
Let the master of satire
Rule the top of every newspaper
Forevermore
In spirit
I'll just be happy being me
Once in awhile sitting on top
Of that good old poet page
Very briefly but content
Reading the funnies
When I should be writing more
Having a laugh at all the reposts
Of good old Peanuts until
Even then they too are gone
And then I will write sad again
Sniff…

Great one Walt! Though I hope that other sad one don't come along. May his works and funny humor live on for our kids to enjoy! Great thoughts!

One way you can save your riches,
And the other will save your soul.

beautiful....I love your sheer honesty in your work...this was a great tribute to a great man! I love that line--

"They all had big heads but tender hearts"

I think that's when the tear fell....

Oh no..I'm truly sad over this.  Snoopy is my favorite of all the characters. I just can't believe it. Are all the greater people finally leaving us? What will be left of art and other related areas once the oldest and best of them go? Weird question. I hope it makes sense.

Imagine if they started doing reruns - and started with the first 'Peanuts' cartoon ever printed .... how old you'll be when they're all done... 45 years worth....
