    My heartiest congratulation to the poet Patrcia Grantham on the recognition of her poem A Faithful Friend as the Member Poem of the day. I did comment on this poem much earlier.
    At the outset poet Patricia is a decent human being with a very kind heart. She is a lovely composer. I love reading her poems because of their contents and lovely rhyming.
    Here I declare that she is the first person of the very few amongst the poets' fraternity who encouraged me to write and with their encouragement only I get the impetus to write further.... A lovely fellow feeling for the fellow poets.
    Her regard & belief to God, sympathy to the distressed is remarkable.
    I wish her the success in this poetic field with a good health and peace of mind.

    My sincere congratulations to Poet Patricia Grantham on the occasion of her poem A Faithful Friend being chosen as Member Poem of the Day today. This poem is representative of the quality of her poems. Her poems depict human relations, deep concerns for society, advice to young and old and so on. She uses rhyme to express ideas in precise and simple words. I have read and commented for almost all her poems and appreciated the beauty of content and depth of feelings in each of them.
    Poet Patricia provides encouragement to fellow poets with her comments full of deep understanding and appreciation. I always look forward to her reading my poem. May she be blessed with health and energy to write more and more poems on this site to share.

    Patricia is an avid reader of poetry (her comments can be seen almost everywhere on PoemHunter) and a tireless, enthusiastic composer of sweetly crafted lyrics. Her basic strength is vivid description, empathy for the subjects and a fluent diction with a penchant for metre and rhyme. She frequently employs classical tools to address contemporary subjects.

    Different topics require different tools for composition. Metrical composition cannot do justice to all kinds of poems. Some of Patricia's poems, I feel, cry out for free verse treatment. I would love her to break free, take wings and to fly into hitherto undiscovered territories of poetic styles that mankind has yet to unearth... She is naturally gifted. But she should experiment a lot. Poetry is all about finding inner freedomt hrough constant search. It is all about finding the exact words, exact music, to express your exact thoughts. Sometimes it takes ages to find that one exact word - but it is always worth the effort! !

    One recurrent underlying aspect of Patricia's poetry is her sympathy for the underprivilged and the less cared for. Another aspect which makes one fall in love with Patricia is her lack of pretensions in choice of phrases or idioms - although sometimes the rhyming appears a bit a laboured. The earthy simplicity in her diction wins her many friends.

    Each poet is unique and should be respected for his/her own style and craft. My own style is very different from Patricia's. What I appreciate in her work is her dedication to her craft. By constantly chiselling away at one's God given natural ability, one can hope to attain perfection someday. I wish Patricia that Perfection in her chosen path...

Grandma's House

Grandma lived so close near by just a few steps away
I always went to visit her house each and every day
She opens up the back door and greets me with a smile
Tells me to come right in and talk with her for awhile

A sweet aroma from her kitchen wafted up into the air
Came from her homemade biscuits made with love and care
Child you better hasten now your mother will call you soon
Yes Grandma I'll hurry but I will be right back at noon
