Hey Sven...

IŽm new here, but I loved your poem and the challenge is hereby accepted...
I will pick up the gauntlet now and strike thee with my pen

"The all of this life
The everything of me
The touch of my wife
When sheŽs touching me
The beauty of youth
The wisdom of age
Sharing it all on this lifetime-stage

The promises made
The thrill of the new
The outside will fade
Like fresh fallen dew
But hear as I say
That I cherish this fall
I see inside now, loving it all"

Eternal love, you just canŽt beat it...


 Ask me how to live your life, and this to you IŽll say: make your choises true and wise, so that when tomorrow will arise, youŽll smile at yesterday...

I have shown my face to this place,,,,,,but yet it be known I am a lover....not a fighter Sven........LOL Excellent poem which greets all to join.  Posted in open 7 for your review Sir.

 It takes only a minute to get a crush on someone, an hour to like someone, a day to love someone, but it takes a lifetime to forget someone.

Welcome Brave Knights!!  The grand fray awaits!
There are hearts to be won and many desires to sate.
Knights from far and near have decided to take part
To win that prize we all hold most dear, the heart.

Parker has written his first sonnet for those here
And Walt has done one that sparks laughter's tears
First Knight has illustrated his poem of the past
And Master has shown us indeed words that will last.

Champions have been chosen and cheered on to greatness
Those who have not yet joined will be chastised for lateness
But from the crowd there rings out a cry very strange
The voice of a lady come from far out of range

She demands entrance to this grand poetic display
Says that though she is a woman, she indeed has much to say
She mounts her horse of white to join the poetic fight
But she is stopped at the gates, denied access this night

For we know that she is gifted, an object she indeed is not!
But she does not belong with this Knighted, rabbled lot!
We do know that as a warrior, she can hold her own
But this challenge is not hers, and so she stands alone.  

Gentlemen, the battle continues. . . but there are still some who have not yet entered. . . we await your entries Gentlemen. . . for honor, for Poetry. . . for ROMANCE!!!

Gentle Skyfyre, though you ask for entrance to this Joust, I am afraid that I must deny thy petition at this time. . . this challenge was not issued to thee. . . perhaps another time. . .


 That which gives light must endure burning

I shall sit here in the shade
and watch the joust with glee
wondering which Knight will
find the heart that resides in me..

Sir Sven I have done your challenge and it stands posted.
Mine words followed onto the boards and it stands coasted.
For I hath hit thee with a fair blow,
And I do hope it is not too low.

For I have posted my blow on the board.
And I pray for my winnings to be soared.
Higher on the pedistle I stand.
With my joust in my hand.

I fear that I stand alone.
Upon the other challengers bones.

I was looking for this challenge, wondering what it was. Well I accept the challenge. First I am going to curl up with an emily bronte book and a cup of tea, then I am getting ot a box of cholocates and all the meg ryan movies I can find just so I can capture love. lol

To the top of the page so that all the others who were clueless to the challenge may know what the darn 'ell was going on.

"I've been too honest with myself I should have lied like everybody else"-Richey Edwards

"Take nothing but pictures. Leave nothing but footprints. Kill nothing but time".

Baltimore Grotto

"Libraries gave us power
Then work came and made us free
What price now for a shallow piece of dignity"
Nicky Wire, A design for Life.

manic street preachers
"Rock 'n' roll is our epiphany
Culture, alienation, boredom and despair"

"To be nobody-but-yourself-in a world which is doing its best night and day, to make you everybody else - means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting."

E.E Cummings.

Balladeer has snuck his in in a subtle way, as "the Simple Balladeer" that he is. His is really good, too good and all the ladies are at his feet..... Change that title old deer so we know your in, and not just sountering off to Hoboken.
