    Hi, everybody,
    I have just recently discovered the poemhunter that inspired me to write in English. Although I’ve been writing in my native language (Russian) for 20 years (sins my childhood) it is still difficult for me to do that in English. So, I am concerned if my spelling and construction of the sentences are correct. If your mother language is English, please send me message with your comments to Alisa Evsyukova.

    Oh, Lord, your beautiful perpetual creations
    Inspire me to thing of sense of life.
    The cry of waves persists the song of angels.
    The pearls of stars reflect the lights of love.
    Oh, Lord, with promising and warming breeze of freedom
    You’re sending me an Omen of the fate.
    I sincerely appreciate your care and wisdom
    And promise you I’ll never forget,
    I will never forget that precious moment
    When I was standing quietly by the sea,
    Watching estimably the birth of morning,
    When rays of Holly bless descended on me.
    Please check all my poems. Thank you very much for your co-operation.

      Poem Hunter inspired me to write in Pidgeon English so other people could understand me

      Alisa, mainly I felt inspired by your writing. Reading the first few lines, I found the (few) grammar 'errors' to add to my inspiration, felt they contributed to the freshness of the writing, lines l ... more

    Sorry, this is the only place I could send you a message. I'd find it very fulfilling if you would talk about general life and poetry sometime with me. Your poems are to say the least, pulchritudinous.

    I did a search for Poemhunters Anthology, but found only a few pages.. one of Adrienne Barnathan, which cited the bad old days... shudder.
    Anyway, didn´t find a ref. to the anthology. Will try lulu.com

      Appears to be okay this side of the equator Michael, he typed with fingers crossed. Not an easy thing to do.

    For those who have not yet received their Anthologies start worrying.
    I had written to Lulu to find out and here is their answer:

    Dear Dr. Nehrlich,

    I apologize for any confusion you may have experienced during our
    checkout process. I do see 2 orders in your account (
    Order 118554 is for 1 copy of _Ridiculous Dietary Allowance (Online) .
    The charge for that order was $0.00_ [http: //www.lulu.com/content/92249]
    Order 119651 is also for 1 copy of _Ridiculous Dietary Allowance
    (Online) . The charge for that order was $0.00_
    [http: //www.lulu.com/content/92249]

    I will have an engineer remove order 119651 from your account since it
    is not a necessary order. With both of those orders the item you
    purchased was a download.

    To access your download, please login to lulu.com, Go to the “My
    Account” tab and then go to “View downloads/purchases
    [http: //www.lulu.com/reader] link”, right click the 'download' icon to
    the right of the title, select the 'save link target as' option, and
    save the document to your pc. Then open the document from your pc.

    Just make sure you have adobe reader software on your pc. If you don't
    go to www.adobe.com and download their free reader before you attempt to
    download the document.

    They did not answer my question of what happened to my order of three books, Express International shipping and the already deducted payment of A$ 72

    I am not impressed.

    It seems I have had the dubious honour of several visits from the 'One' bomber. Ah well, the way of things I guess. Rough with the smooth. Yet it was nicely balanced by the fact I have had a lovely complimentary comment, completely unsolicited, in relation to my biography on site. lol. We have downs and we have ups. Hey ho!

      Declan, how do you know? Your stats look pretty healthy to me and your average rating is high. Which poems? It doesn't look like a 'straight through the list' oner. My green-eyed monster detective can ... more
