A Member To Remember


May never get to see your face
Will love you ever just in case
Visits to PH as a big family
A Poet member we will always be

May never get to hear your voice
Responses or requests is our choice
Fitted together like a hand in a glove
Tightly woven in a band of love

We'll always strive to do our best
Be ourselves and not like the rest
Displaying of poetry for all to see
A Poet member we will always be

    Again I read and again I feel that though we'll write and read,
    We feel us so near to each other but perhaps never we 'll meet. (Report) Reply

    Your a member to remember and just writing the chains of loving in the member family of poetry makes one feel good...I think I'll go and pour myself a port and drink to it! (Report) Reply

    Yes we are a poet's family.
    But poets grow up like little children
    and leave their family one day.
    But they come and visit. (Report) Reply

    There is something addictive about reading poetry from our varied poets. A necessary dosage per day
    is required to remain sane. (Report) Reply

Pacific lamentations of slow bells,
The crunch of boots on blue snow rosy-glistening,
Shuffle of autumn leaves; and all farewells:
