    Mary, I am here to carry
    flowers from the gang of hundred.
    Ask the man you chose to marry
    did the earth shake when it thundered
    as you two exchanged your vows,
    and another serious query....
    back at the obstetrics house
    was it maybe somewhat eerie
    when the doctor had a look
    at that little bundled joy
    who would proudly hold the book
    so much later, like a toy.
    Poems written read by many
    do you think you knew it then?
    Yes, we all possess uncanny
    knowledge that will come again
    added wisdom of much living
    rounds the picture, makes creation
    modestly by you is given
    Happy Birthday Celebration.
    H

    Mary! If your name is pronounced, like, Nagy -
    then I don't have a rhyme in my wit so waggy;
    or if it's Hungarian and thus pronounced Nagy
    well, we all know by now - your heart's so large;
    but if it's pronounced just as Allan says, Nagy -
    then - many very happy returns of the day! !

    For the members of the Alzheimer Club or those on cholesterol medication here is a reminder that Mary Nagy is celebrating her birthday as soon as she wakes up this morning. Hubby has promised to leave a six-pack at bedside before he is off to work and the kids are baking the biggest baddest cake you can imagine.Anyone's name starting with C will have the clean-up detail.
    HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Mary and may each birthday get a bit better until you reach the age where you couldn't care or wouldn't know the difference.
    Best wishes
    Herbert

    evening update, then I'm signing off for awhile:
    if we're OK with around 100-120 pages, we have ten additional poets, and those who really want 3 can keep them (yeah) . Some are happy with one or two, which makes the group more representative and includes as many as possible. I don't think size vs. cost here is a big issue; Marcy's estimate of around $10 seems reasonable. Are we OK with size? The fun part comes next, getting them together happily...

    if this list, gonna be a book is a family thing, a thing among friends, don't invite other members to submit their works.That is not fair..........

    I think it should be said for ALL POEMHUNTER MEMBERS: lulu.com is how this book is going to be put together. ANYONE can do it. I heard about it but never checked because I thought there must be a catch or some big upfront cost but......there isn't. So, if anyone wants to make a book and have all their friends from Poemhunter (or just themself) ....this is a FREE thing that is open to EVERYONE. If you are a poet here that wants to have your poems in a book like the one that is being put together, there are step-by-step instructions on how to do it. (It looks pretty simple) . I'm saying this so anyone that feels they may have been overlooked can have a chance at participating in this (even if it's in a different book) . There is no 'rule' saying only one book can be published by people here. I hope there are many books put together by poemhunter users. What a nice collection that would be! Sincerely, Mary

      Exactly, Mary. I think it should stay with the original plan of three per poet.* Call it Volume I. If it gets real thick you can use it to tyake the wrinkles out of photos. Best H * (Don't fiddle ... more

      absolutely! And as I said before, there are SO many poets here - a truly impressive mix of people and poems - I hope we have many more collaborations in the future.
