    Whenever I think of rhyming poetry, I think of Stephen Katona's sweetly rhyming verse. His poems, mostly on animals make me think of the illustrious 'animal poet'... Ted Hughes' poems. Stephen has created a parallel world of animals where they are understanding, clever, compassionate and intelligent as human beings. His poems are simple and sweet, enriched with positivity and edifying thoughts. Besides being a poet, he is a born cartoonist. I wish him greater success in the ensuing years!

Koko's Poem For Robin Williams

How I wish you'd let me know,
Before you decided to go.
When you came to play,
You seemed to be okay.
I, a gorilla with thick fur,
And you, practically a sir.
Your heart was so warm,
Friendship took me like a storm.
I'll never forget that silly grin,
That made me feel we were kin.
How could I have missed your pain?
I saw no sign of hidden rain.
Over your darkest gloom,
You wore a glowing costume.
If only I had seen your plight,
And filled your black world with light.
How did you come to forget,
Our funny little duet?
Now I know ...
