    thanks for that, and now back to our regularly scheduled programming. I have poems for Max, Sherrie, Herbert, Raynette, Marcy, Mary, Mahnaz, Alice Vedral, and Sally Clarke. I've emailed requests to David Nelson B., Ulrike and Jacob Hassler, but John Kay and Andrew K don't accept email. I need some lunch; someone reach out to the others, please. Then I think we're set!

      I sent news to John and Andrew via Reply forms from old e-mails. I also notified Lamont, Adam, and Michael Phillips. Anyone else think of any 'regulars' here?

    Dammit I've lost a posting: to say, Lori's doing so well, maybe we could push forward the matter of whom we'd like to ask if they're interested.. I'd like to see Jerry, Raynette, Max, Lamont, Ulrike, Amberlee, Sonja, Lenchen, CJHeck, Adrienne, JC, John Kay, Pradeep, Lawrence, Michael Phillips, Andy K, Adam, for a start, asked.(Apologies if I missed some on my cyberlost list, put it down to age...) If you agree, would you PLEASE ask them individually if they're interested? They don't all read the Forum regularly.

    And Marcy - if they all agreed, that would make about 28 poets times three pages each, say 90ish pages plus the other standard pages, or 180 pages RH page only - would that put up the purchase price?

      no, I think I'm cool w/it. But I also said I'd post a draft layout of the cover, and I have to do something else first, so I didn't want folks thinking I flaked so early in the process. I'll repost ... more

    I've jumped the gun... try this for size. On the other hand you may want something more informal. but I reckon PH deserves a big thankyou.

    Some poems from some poets on Poemhunter.com


    Poemhunter.com is just one jewel from the amazing treasure-house that is the world-wide-web. It is a poetry resource – going on 85,000 poems from 10,000 poets alive and dead,40,000 song lyrics,1,500 recording artists, and 65,000 quotations.

    It opens its space to anyone who cares to post their poems, and within minutes you can read feedback from its world-wide online readership (be warned!) .

    There is also a Forum where poets can discuss poetry and each other.
    Some of these poet-friends have got together to make this book for their friends and family. This is not an official publication, nor does it claim to be ‘the best of Poemhunter’ – just a representative sample, for your enjoyment.

    But the poets here wish to express their heartfelt gratitude to Poemhunter and its founder, Efrem Teymur, for this unparalleled encouragement to them and many others, to have their voices heard, and to put poetry back in the public eye and ear, as one of the greatest achievements of mankind.

    The copyright of the poems remains with the writers.
