A Dedication to David Lewis Paget


I sing to thee with praise my friend

because your poems make me smile

In ever line and word you breath

of story's so well defined

The adventures that you take me through

From hangs man nose to haunted house

To love unforeseen or spoken of

but for ever planted in our dreams

The stars that shine in deepest blue

The waterfalls of Timbucktoo

The games that children have only heard

But never play because they might lose their soul

Oh dear Sir that writes your prose

I say to thee oh please don't go

This site would miss a true bard indeed

If ever you decided to leave

In this dear patience of my pain
