a letter to Passions ...

think to your glorious aged end days
ink wells won't wear forever's fleet fashions
seize this chance while you have it to amaze
spill your soul's voice to listening Passions

the world has no use for your so many words
their ears only hear $hining $ilvery coins
to scream at the soulless aplenty only blurs
a whisper at Passions, mends and rejoins

an empty pit awaits any not willing
to write and feed upon poetic rations
to this place, take and fill your filling
giving a day's gift be a letter to Passions

My calling before me, let quill be my offering;
For to be called poet, no greater gift to receive.

M.A.

Wonderful write.  I have seen a few of these tributes to Passions since I have been here and even penned one myself.  I find your presence here refreshing and bright and I know I am not alone when I say that.  You fit the family well.

Poetry should surprise by fine excess...it should strike the reader as a wording of his own highest thoughts and appear almost a remembrance. -J.Keats

This tender missive imparts a thoughtful, sweetened gifting...lovely writing, M.A.
