Those Words The Days, My Friend
~*Marge Tindal*~


We heard that he was coming
that boulevardier from Florida South
Heard that he might woo us
with poetry straight from his mouth

It was with convivial spirits
that we waited for his arrival
Wondering if we'd been bamboozled
and if there was a chance for survival

Legerdemain was his reputation
preceding his knock at the door
In he bounded with joy to spare
surely he'd not be a bore

So artfully he fomented us
that we were caught aback
Surely the skills of a poet
he certainly did not lack

He was the concatenation
that held us all in awe
Yes, Seymour has come
to be the sweetheart poet to us all~


*A tiny, well-deserved tribute to a real gentleman*
Seymour, you inspired us with your poetry
and dazzled us with your 'Randy'

Well, hon it's a good thing you put the meanings at the bottom or I'd have never gotten through this great tribute. I love learning new words and no one teaches them better than you.

Thanks for sharing the words to make us all brilliant and the poem.  

Hugs, Marti

Marge, I love the way you are all filling us in on the meet you had. It makes us feel like we were there. I know you all had a wonderful time. I also like the way this  "family of friends" talks to each other in their dedication of poetry. Like I've said before, you are all amazing people and I'm glad that you're accepting me into your "family. Thanks to you all. It was great, too, the way that you included the "words" that you learned at the meet. Thanks.
Love,
Ethel/garysgirl

Marge,
The bounding was mental but never the less there. That old dear he's getting on I fear.
And you were the queen of the May. And I would have it no other way. Eternal thank my friend.

*Hugs* from this end of the state,
reaching your way with a *smile*~
In your eyes was all the 'joy-on-the-bound'
one could hope to find~

Did you know that your eyes hold poetry you haven't written yet ?
Well ... they do, my friend~
Keep penning~

I just think you're super-duper~
Love n' hugs~
~*Marge*~

I just love going into the archives to find
other pieces that bring the memories of Seymour freshly to mind~
