And that, Mr. Mack, bespeaks true artistry, when all can relate, and all buy every word...you've done it...I'm still watchin' and takin' notes...smiles and hugs anyway...even if you are not in need!

Are you trying to say that the "Give and Give" theory doesn't always work??? So maybe we should call it "Give and Given".. or "Give and Gave"...

This is a nice piece of work, Deer... and unfortunately too often true...

Balladeer...you are indeed a master. This poem takes the reader on a journey of love and loss...thanks for the ride.

This poem unfortunately strikes a chord with me, and thus that poem I wrote "I've Given All I Had to Give". WE must think alike in some ways. I was captivate by your telling my life, and you always write it so well.

'Deer

Its true you give until it hurts,
I've been on the receiving end.
Your ripostes and clever words,
Hurt me through and through, my friend.

Henceforth, you won't give any more,
From now on I'm going to fight.
I'm gonna crawl across the floor,
And give your leg a bite!


grrrrrufffffffff, grrruffffff

heh heh - great poem, 'Deer.

Aaahhh Balladeer, a wonderful treat for these tired eyes this evening. You've portrayed these emotions beautifully. There's nothing like the tiredness that follows years of giving and so little receiving. Really well done Michael!  

Best wishes,
/Kit

Balladeer, this poem really hits home with me. I am a "Giver". So, I know how it feels to give, but never recieve. And sometimes, it hurts. It seems to me, that there are alot of takers, but very few givers.

Here, my friend, I have a great Big Hug for you. And, if you need more, I have plenty more where that one came from.

And you give us so much.  Thank you.  Because of you, I am actually researching submitting poems for publication.  Because of you, I find myself becoming more confident and reaching out more.  Not just for better form, but for deeper content.

You have changed my poetic life.  You have given me a year now and have worked with me and encouraged me.  I couldn't get that from anywhere or anyone.

You have given me so much and I will always be thankful - and, yes, I know ... I am behind one assignment.  I am working on that Rondel (grins) - am checking the meter again today.

Thank you, Balladeer man.

Rose, I have no doubt you are a giver. It shows in everything you do.

Alison, you bring tears to an old man's eyes. If the workshop does nothing else than to provide what has made a difference for you, it will have been a wonderful success. I look forward to reading your first book!

How about a poem in a publication?  I am thinking I have far more to learn before trying to jump into a book.  So, you ain't off the teaching hook, you know.

Love you,
A

So good.  Kind of makes me sit back and just think about how much I take.
