I was born at a very early age, they allowed me to live, but forced me to go to School. That's where I sang hymns from my tiny Songs of Praise hymnbook.

Most of the time, I try to rhyme using the common metre 8 syllables then 6 then 8 then 6 verse style. I've been writing hymns and poems and stories for a very long time and have added 800 poems on poemhunter.com already.

    A jaunty rhythm for a serious subject. Sorry. Poetry demands more than this.

    I think your works are fantastic, sir! The first poem I read by you inspired me to write my own one on the same subject. Thanks! I hope to become at least half as good as you some day!

Best Poem of Denis Martindale

Giant Panda!

A baby Panda has to eat,
How else can Pandas grow?
He has to stand upon his feet,
To go where he must go!
He has to blossom like a rose
That rises to the sun
And that's the answer, Heaven knows,
Why chewing must be done...

But left alone to chew, chew, chew,
The growing Panda swells!
His belly bulges into view,
As he does nothing else...
As if there's reason to make haste
While he looks mighty glad,
No exercise to trim his waist,
He looks just like his Dad!

But Giant Panda, must you stay
As plumped up as you are?
It's ...

Read the full of Giant Panda!
