    This is a very creative and inspiring poem. I like meter and control, I can feel the passion in this poem, excellent piece! Rob

    A Hundred Thousand Men: Poetry Hound (
    Regardless of whether we think the war was a mistake or the commander in chief misguided, we do need to show support for our troops, and you've done that well.

    A Pale Horse: Ivy Schexnayder

    Bugs Rock N Roll: CJ Heck

    Cloudy Day: ..
    Kinda like writing that person's initials in mustard on a sandwich...then the whole name.
    *big mistake! it's nasty ;) *

    Cowboys Day: Samantha Garrett
    Very good I really liked how you introduced that hes a cowboy at the end however it may be a little bit more effective if you placed the first line as the title. It would leave a bit of mystery for the reader and then it ties it all together at the end when you say 'he is a cowboy after all'. I am just suggesting things, I really do think its good though.

    For A Day: CJ Heck
    Hello Bill,
    (Clapping) Excellent poem. You have a nice way of writing for the child in us all.
    Warmest regards,
    CJ

    Freedom: Jeanfrancois Denis

    We should all be thankful for the men who died for freedom.
    There are too many men trying to steal it from peoples out there.
    Excellent!

    John Laraquette: Lamont Palmer
    Sweet poem. All through my teens and 20's I was an amateur actor, doing lots of community theatre. I was always starstruck and I remember how excited I became when I bumped into John Travolta in an outdoor cafe in Washington DC one night. This poem captures that experience nicely.

    Me And The Lonely: dissatified exmember (1/30/2005 1: 32: 00 PM)
    Loneliness is a state of mind. We are actually never really alone. So many share the same feelings, that we are in fact part of a huge network of people. Just imagine all those thousands of friends just sitting there filling the airwaves with the same omotion. hehehehe hey I'd be looking for some quiet time.

    Nice Poem Bill.

    One Candle: Kelly Allen Vinal
    As it burns, very well done.

    One Dream: ..
    I think everyone can relate to this poem. Very clear image...I can see (you) staring at the ceiling with your arms folded across (your) chest. Been there...done that... =)

    Soldier Coming Home: Kelly Allen Vinal
    As a soldier, I can relate to this fine lyric. Nicely done

    From: A Student, Dear Mr. Star
    My name is **** ***** I'm 16 years old and I'm a
    student of Laramie Senior High School. For our poetry
    class we were asked to find a poem memorize it and
    give a presentation on the author of your poem.
    That's when i came across your poem entitled 'The
    Alamo' I instantly knew that this was the poem i
    wanted to do. I then had to find some backround on
    the author, and i looked for you but i couldn't find
    enough so i was wandering if before this monday May 2
    if you coud send me an e mail that contains your life
    story for the class.
    Thanks for your time

    You should really be writing children's stories. You are a very creative storyteller. I would never want to be the woman who has to say to you 'Tell me the truth.' LOL ;)
