Not to be outdone ...
I'M NUMBER -  FIFTY-ONE !
Ooopsie Daisy !

Rainbow Girl,
can you guess
that we'll only end
this little mess
when you come home
and play with glee
among the pages
of PASSION'S POETRY !

Aren't you cute, Margie?
What do you mean, not to be outdone?
Does this mean what I think it means? (You're actually a year older than I am?)
See you on Cindy's post

Alright already,

Darn twitchy mouse had something in his mouth again. O well, guess it my finger.

I'm Touching Sorrow

their really gone but ... it doesn’t feel real... it’s been only a few hours or so and it still doesn’t quite feel sincere... I think I’ll just walk into passions stute and "they’ll all be there" there’s so much left for them to feel... they’ll sure be hoot... and Lucky too... how 'bout Liz and the others too. They won’t be there... their really gone away and it hurts more than I can bear... I miss them so much the world is such a colder place without them here... but it’s gotten a little better maybe... I suppose I cry now and then I even smile though reserved... still a raindows ring hangs over me like a subtle feeling reminding me how life can be as good as then... I know I will soon feel whole again... I will truly be happy too but I know also that sadness has touched this life... yet my loves have allowed me leave of it... Oh, I’ll give it another hour or so.

I don't want to be a sniff. Sob Sob

Hey, my precious Rainbow
For you I write this poem
I cannot think on anything else
To get your toush back home
You see how we all miss you
The colors,they have gone
I sit here in a funky blue
The days seem very long
We'll keep your poem on page one
To remind you how we care
You are needed here, hon
Your Rainbow's song to share

Okay .. I know ... but you gotta give me an E for effort .... LOL

Ooops!  What brought me here?  Oh, well, seeing as I'm here anyway, here's something I wrote a long, long, long time ago, and I think you should hear it.

The quality of mercy is not stain'd
     It droppeth as the gentle rain from Heaven
     Upon the place beneath.
     It is twice bless'd;
     It blesses she that gives, and she that takes.

I think I wrote that, [!] if I remember correctly. 'Course it could have been my great, great grandfather!

RG...I just got here, and you're just leaving.  Reading your poem, and the many caring responses, I can't help feeling a sense of loss, even though I don't know you.  But, if you are leaving, I would like to remind you of some words from an old song.  From all that I have read here, they seem to apply..."the greatest thing you'll ever learn, is just to love and be loved in return."  I hope that you will carry all of these wonderful friends in your heart!

Troy

It amazes me that your words have brought us together like this..even the new members who haven't established a relationship with you can see how much we love you and worry about you. I hope you will return soon...I think until you do, this post may be floating here on top!

Hi RainbowGirl,

I am so sorry I did not get to know you, because I have read the replys and you are spoken of so wonderfully, I feel I lost a friendship that could of been true.May you be blessed in what ever you do.

Local Rebel,

Somehow I had this little hunch
That he'd beat everyone to the punch
He sat and waited out his turn
And let the glowing embers burn
He hid among the hunter's blind
Then pounced on number sixty-nine
And all the others looked in awe
This rebel's quicker to the draw
Smooth move, local rebel
Liz

Cindy, did you see that?

Elizabeth: I started to spoil his fun by posting 2 in a row. *G* But I decided such patience should be rewarded.... Hear that, Cindy??? When are you going to reward ours? *G* (Hint, Hint!)

To Be Home

Is the best cure for the stubborn
bleu sadness that’s fallen so hard upon
passions’ doors the rooms in the stute don’t
seem quite so snug as when the fires
were high lighted by a Rainbow
yet still there will be the old
friends who’ll welcome
you after an absence
an take up the threads
of acquaintance where it
was dropped off just before
Spring I can still find some of
your flowers stuck in between the
pages on the desk asters and geraniums
the last dried roses tied in ribbons of Rain-
bows colours covered in Cindy’s red & white
berries nestling among plumed leaves to prolong
the beauty of the things that link past to our present
but the glow of the fire and the early evening and the
crisp air and bright stars out of doors remind me that
winter is gone and makes me glad that I’m here
home at passions and thankful not only for
its peace but your warm writing also.

[I think I've caught a Spring sniff]
