    For all of you in need of a good laugh, may I divert your attention to Sean Joyce's poem (?) 'Help me, my poem's escaped (contains words) '. A materpiece I assure you.

    Happy New Year everyone, and Happy Birthday, Jerry! I've had a house full of holiday company (gone now) and then sick with bronchitis and away from PH. I know I'm way behind reading everyone's new poetry, but please bear with me and I'll try and catch up somehow! I've missed you all.

      It's way to early (pre-coffee) for me to be as creative as my cohorts, so I will second Mary's sentiment. Happy Happy birthday, Jerry!

    To Jerry,
    A very happy 75th birthday to you, our friend. Here is a little ditty to 'celebrate the day'

    But our Jerry is alive,
    And today he's 75.

    On this very special day,
    He's a lovely friend to us,
    And to us, he is a PLUS!

    Here on poemhunter.com,
    we've congratulations from
    all your pals who think your swell,
    Cos with us you really gel.

    So to a really smashing chap,
    Who is really on our map,
    Happy birthday Jerry dear,
    We send you a GREAT BIG CHEER! ! ! ! ! ! ! !

    Love Ernestine XXX

    A Very Happy Birthday For Jerry Hughes - Poet Extraordinaire


    He's nothing like Hannibal
    but so human an animal.
    His poetry shows
    that the blood within flows
    with a steady noblesse,
    not designed to impress
    but a man of the word,
    neither warrior nor nerd.

    (The reason this is early is
    the old Alzheimer and a very early day tomorrow) .


    So, Jerry, with any luck at all you will be snoozing early tonight in preparation of the big day tomorrow, thus you will not see it early.

    My very best wishes for a Happy 75th and that we may meet again before your eightieth.
    Herbert
