    Unusual question:

    Is there a way to block access to one's own poems somehow?
    Short of taking them off?
    I shall explain the reason when it's time

    I've had trouble accessing anyone's poetry all evening. How frustrating! Night-night everyone. See you bright and early tomorrow.

    I've never posted poems in the forum before but I hope it's ok this one time......I just want to make sure Jerry sees his Birthday poem and I'm not sure if he'll be on before it's swept off to oblivion! :) Thanks Mary

    Happy Birthday Jerry!

    When I heard about his birthday
    from the ''birdie'' Adrienne
    I thought I better write a poem
    to celebrate this man.

    His heart is young as ever.
    His soul has touched us all.
    He always seems to be there
    when a troubled one may call.

    If I had lots of money
    I'd buy something you could use....
    but since I'm just a ''po' folk''
    I'll say Happy Birthday Mr. Hughes!

      You hit the nail on the head with your second verse, Mary. Yes, he's the heart and soul of this site. And quiet with it too. Who is Australia's Poet Laureate, anyway? But I guess celebratory verses t ... more

    What's with the leap in time folks? It's bloody hard enough, getting used to being 40 bloody 6, without being forced to look a 47 for six months before it's a fact. Does this happen regularly? ...I never realised I'd have to agree to that sort of excellerated ageing, writing on this site! lol I may have to put my age back a year! What a great idea? Never mind! Forget the question.

    Grinning, feeling so much younger now!

    I discovered today at www.poemsabout.com, that a poem of mine about a fish is the most popular poem written about a fish, by anyone, ever.
    And I didn't even realize it WAS about a fish!

    ps: Happy Birthday, Jerry!

      Max, This site is so, unbelievably crap in its presentation, whoever came up with the idea deserves to be put on trail. It is the only thing I could enthusiastically support the death penalty as a d ... more

      It's about two children playing in the sandbox. There's a (plastic) fish IN it.

    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.

      And very good it is too, Allan. This, I gather, is a fine example of humour from down under, that could be seen as quite hurtful to those that do not take this 'matety banter' into consideration. The ... more

    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.

    Friends...I just posted a baseball poem that's under a ream of new posts suddenly. If you're interested, it's 'Dead Man's Curve.' Thanks.
