    Frank, this is what I'm talking about. Instead of babbling like a mental defective, you could haVE SAID SOMETHING INTELLIGENT ABOUT OVID, THEN SOMEONE ELSE COULD HAVE RESPONDED INTELLIGENTLY, AND THEN... YOU GET THE IDEA, you know, the way adult poetry lovers might communicate.

    I’m an Ovid. Born and raised an Ovid. Ovid (my great, great, great ‘whatever’ grandfather) was a darned good poet. That’s where I get all of my originality. If anyone would like me to mentor them in the art of poetry I might be willing to help out. Just email me and I’ll more than likely agree to be your mentor. Show you the ropes so to speak. What word to use here, and what word to use there. Just like any mentor might do. Email me. I’m here for you.
    Anyway, I think Ovid used words very well. A great 'user' of the words of English (once translated of course from the olden Scottish tongue) . Yep, uncle Ovid could sure think of the right word at the right time. Super job by Ovid. Good guy, that Ovid. A much better poet than most poets from Arizona, that I'm sure of. ;)

    I don't care if my post was deleted. I do care that it's not possible to have a useful conversation about poetry on this site anymore because of the numb-nutted pseudonyms and their lame attempts at humor and/or satire. What a waste.

    My post was deleted by management for using the f**k word? I wish management would devise a way to block all these destructive pseudonyms. This forum has been ruined by the psychos and their disguises. I don't understand what pleasure there is in polluting a potentially informative site. F**k all of you and the personas you rode in on!

    A Limerick I picked up somewhere seems to be needed as a reply:

      There was a young lady of Arden, The tool of whose swain wouldn't harden. She said with a frown, " I've been sadly let down By the tool of a fool in a garden."

    I have paid my tributes to my friend Yoonoos Peerbocus.. through a poem...hope all at PH like it and join me in remembering a PH member for his beautiful poetry which he has left behind as he passed away recently....


    In memory of Yoonoos Peerbocus

    I remember- My first timid venture at PH that
    Hailed his first comment for this unknown being-
    Words of inspiration, acquainting a humble guide;
    And behold for me, a new vista opened-
    A new space that thrived on poets:
    Amateurs like me and beacons like him.

    Then I read his languid poetry- and felt
    How futile the words of mine were, and
    How undeserved my meagre expressions
    Oh! The view I got of this world anew-
    Through his poetic sight, thus expanding
    My poor vision, to zones unexplored.
    Yes, he was the guiding star
    Steering me with his kind zeal and
    Precious feedback that led me ahead.


    I remember-His rustic, simple, yet grandeur of poetry and
    The humble moments that were transformed
    Into emotional revelations, through words like
    Pure streams of wisely gems or melody recited.

    So fortunate I feel to have known his poetry-
    Bless the souls that reared him;
    Bless the souls that are his legacy;
    Bless his soul that granted us-
    The beauty of his thoughts.

    Alas! The void of his ingenuity
    Now will never be filled-
    As he has transcended
    From his breathing cage,
    And resides now, where he hears us not-
    Yet with a sad heart, I pray-
    May you rest in peace dearest friend;
    May your lullaby be the breeze of Jannah;
    May the celestial angels await your arrival-
    At the gate of the heavenly abode.

    As for we poor earthly souls
    We will cherish the bounty
    Of your poetic treasure –
    Forever and ever......

    The Network just called and apologized a whole bunch. The Network is now okay. " New update" . The Network is pretty cool now. Go ahead and interact with The Network. Pretty good guy that Network. Not bad at all.
