Po Dev: Back in the pages✍🏾
This is for all the contestants from the surprise FS contest to reveal their poem and who their stanzas were written for -
†made it very hard to choose†† † † †
I love so many people here
I've given you some clues
So this will have to be
†the first of more to come
It's way too big a list
†I have to pick them from
(LATE BLOOMER- MARGARET)
This woman is so special
sister and sweet friend † † † † † † †
wrote about her once before†
I'll †love her till the end
This guy's like a big brother
Who writes poetry or story† † † †
Explains things from the Bible
and gives to God the glory
She is such a gift to all
Christian warm and kind† † † † † † † † † † † † † †
A great writer who does not
hide†the fact that she is blind
He's helped me many times
step outside my comfort zone†† †
He writes his life†and interviews
some authors that he's known ††
She sends me poems and messages
Get well and things like that †
a special friend who also
sends a message from her cat†
To have a friend and brother
like this man is such a plus†† † † † † † † † † † His writing shows his principals†
of his honesty and trust
She's got the biggest heart
†with just the right amount of fun † † † † † . † †
A writer and retired nurse
who still helps everyone
This man is loved by all
and for most he is a leader† † † † † † † † † † † † †
His poetry is number one
of rhyming and great metre
As she serves her Lord
She's poised with love and caring†† † † † † † † †
It shows in all the beauty
of her writing that she's sharing
This man who cracks me up†
always leaves me with a smile†† † † † †
He also is a caring friend
who will go the extra mile
So that's my first ten people
but there are many more
Feel free to guess and you may be
in the next group I†explore -
"Here's But a Few"
Nantucket was his home for years,
he saved his poems from decades past.
He's gathered thoughts of sixty years,
to post them here ~ with skill and class!
(Richard Montfort Cary)
This man will keep you tuckered out,
with action stories so well writ-
When he reviews you?ll have no doubt,
his insight?s matched by sharpest wit!
This Aussie woman shares her heart,
her teaching insights are a treasure-
Through thick and thin she does her part,
She writes, she loves, with equal measure!
This gent admits he?s ninety-eight,
each post is penned with wisdom?s ink-
His wife waits at the pearly gate,
content to bide her time, I think?
This woman?s words are filled with light,
though life has challenged her, she?s strong!
An instant pleasure on this site-
In fact, she?s "write" where she belongs!
(Debi Pick Marquette)
His interviews have hit the mark-
his questions probative and fair.
His every story has a spark,
Which causes me to linger there?
She loves forms, Japanese, indeed-
writes them in shades of vibrant hue.
In brevity, she plants a seed,
as Basho smiles at each haiku?
(Gypsy Blue Rose)
He bleeds his past upon the page,
With master?s skill, he?ll touch your soul.
You're sure to feel his joy and rage~
he presses diamonds from black coal...
She writes with tender faith, and love~
sends birthday sun in skies of blue.
Each essay is a notch above,
her lexicon raised my IQ!
What a blast! So many more to shine the spotlight on! -
Always encouraging with reviews
Glad her health now has better news
Original, clear and sparkling writes
Show creative depth of her insights.†† †††††††††(Karenina)†
As sharp as an eagle's, your eye sees
Faults with spaces or apostrophes ...
You're still attempting to get the hang
Of my own dear country's awful "slang"!†† † † (GaryMaclean)
Word plays and paintings she does with ease,
Her poems and stories are sure to please ...
Paints as well, loves the outdoors
Worthy of our respect and applause.† † † † † † † (LisaMay)
You are like me in so many ways
And our dogs converse about their days
Your writing's a joy with metre so fine
But I think you've given up on mine!†††††† † † † † †(Paul MCFarland)
She writes what she knows, and does it well
Her ancestors' stories she likes to tell.
Motor-bike accident ? life rearranged
Priest helped her so much ? attitudes changed.† †(Aussie)
His writing's always brilliant word art
Powerful jolts to my head and heart
I gasp and weep at reading his pain
Six stars are gifted, time and again!† † † †(Theodore McDowell)† †
She has a heart for teaching, and she's wise,
courageous and creative, ever brave,
as brilliantly, new forms and styles she tries.
Her poems are the ones we like to save.†
A student in a class I took last year,
his free verse lines impressed me from the start.
He mingles pain and beauty, making clear
the best of poems always touch the heart.
But, speaking of the heart, I'm also sure
to often find my own moved by this lady.
She writes deep poetry, meant to endure
and gives reviews both beautiful and weighty.
I think, in writing tributes such as this,
I must include someone I've known forever.
To not extoll his gifts, 'twould be remiss.
He writes with detail and his tales are clever.
Another friend whose stories light the way,
inspiring young adults as well as old,
writes such authentic tales, no one can say
they're not as true as any stories told.
She's beautiful, she dances and she writes,
and teaches music too. Her students thrive,
and when she left, no longer in my sights,
I was SO glad to find her still alive!
He's number one for writing scripts, I think,
and highly entertaining are they, too.
"An optimist, a dreamer, I won't sink,"
He claims, and through the years, it's proven true.
I can't pronounce her name, but she's a prize.
Variety defines her style, and bright.
She writes with love and tries to emphasize
the lives of others on this writing site.
She is more fun than anyone should be,
and cute as any button I have seen.
I love to read her clever poetry
with meter and quaint rhymes so pure and clean.
It seems a shame to leave out some dear friends
whose lives have transformed mine in wondrous ways,
but every poem somehow, sometime, ends,
or else ~ you'd all be sitting here for days!
(All the rest of you who mean
so much to me.)
DEBI PICK MARQUETTE - Her heart is always open, and she welcomes yours.
Her heart is open wide with love
She?s ready for your tale
She prides her love for all her friends
And talks until she's pale
CHARITY - A crying soul. Definitely worth the read.
Faith and hope are all she lacks
Her life has done her wrong
But she resists and bounces back
And raps a fearful song
LOVENPEACE - A lovely woman. Her Fanstorian name says it all.
She?s given up her life on earth
She thinks she?s done it all
But I remind her every day
Without her we would fall
WAYNE FOWLER - A real story teller. And a historian for all ages
He chases rocks and scratches dirt
I?m sure he?s fired up
About the next big thing that may
Get poured into his cup
KARENINA - She responded to a caustic review and since has shown me the ropes.
She welcomes you with open arms
No matter how you rate
She knows you're only helping her
Get past the starting gate
TERRY BROXTON - The "Interviewer," the "Kingmaker." But he writes just as good.
He questions you In deep pursuit
Of answers oh so few
He only wants the truth behind
Your last six-star review
LANCELLOT - Phenomenal back story on Chicago and that city's problems. Gripping tale.
He has a lot of colored thoughts
They linger on his mind
He wants equality for all
Black, white and all mankind
SUSAN NEWELL - She finds the errors in the "eagle-eye's" writing. Thus, Hawkeye!
I?m told I have an eagle?s eye
But there is yet another
One I now call miss Hawkeye
I must have been her brother
ROY OWEN - Always relying on the Bible and our Lord and Savior to justify his words.
You can always trust and depend
On his devotion's word
He loves the Lord though late in life
His aim is ne?er deterred
TEMPESTE - Strong woman who wants to be known as a woman and a man as a man!
The woke should go back to sleep
Is the cry of this young lady
One man, one woman is all there is
The rest is cockamamie
