One Last Poem 2001
'Twas the night before Christmas, and all 'cross the Net,
    Were lurking the poets I was lucky I met.
    The quatrains were written, the free verse was pars'd,
    In hopes that one person would see their true hearts.


With joy in their rhyme and pain in their verse,
    They quickly signed off, all poets dispersed.
    While I, at my desk, recalled their kind posts
    in forums we shared on faraway  hosts.


'Midst the tears that we cried were the smiles that we sent,
    With the fears that we shared, and the help that we lent.
    One last poem this year I still know I must pen:
    Merry Christmas to all, 'til we all meet again.

Lovely poem, lovely thoughts. May YOU have all the blessings of the season. May the Miata take you only to the places you want to go, may you have peace and love and hope and time.

Thank you for sharing your home with us. What would our lives be like without it? I shudder to think about it. Your heart is as kind and giving as any I've ever known. I am personally blessed to call you friend. I love you. God bless you.

Best wishes for the holidays Ron. Thank you so much for this site, and allowing us all to over-run it!! In the short time I have been here, I have met some wonderful people and read their beautiful poetry. I can honestly say that my love of poetry has increased tenfold with your great pages. Thank you so much for all the hard work you put in behind the scenes for us all. You make it seem so effortless, but I know that it is far from that. Best wishes for the new year.

When I look back to all that has happened this past year, the shining light in my personal life has been joining this family of passionate poetic people. Thank you, Ron, for giving so many of us a place to learn, to dream, to play, to share and care with so many. Happy holidays, you are the best!

Ron,

      There is so much I should thank you for.  I wouldn't even know where to start. The haven you created here in these blue walls has done more for me than you could ever imagine.  I offer you a sincere thank you from the bottom of heart.  I hope you have a safe, love and peace filled holiday

Hugs,
Tara

You offer us a place where we can congregate in verse ...
A charming host, a friendly home … where poets can converse;
A habitat of harmony, where hearts and spirits climb,
Through every post, through each response, through every heartfelt line.

The ambiance that filters through these pages colored blue,
Reflects the rainbow of your heart, the many hues of you;
I wish for you, a myriad of merriment and cheer,
For all the joy you bring to us throughout each wondrous year.

Merry Christmas to you and yours, Ron.  

Best wishes and big hugs,
/Kit

Though you moderate you are seldom here
allowing the poets their time of good cheer
to share their lives both happy and drear
thanks for your poem! Season's Greetings! Hear Hear!
