    Joseph is a wonderful warm man. His poetry is rich in beauty humour and rhythm. He has an amazing ability to leave his readers warmed through to the depths of their hearts. I am so blessed to have found him on poemhunter. I have never met him and I am unashamed to say that I love both him and his poetry deeply.

    I have had the much privileged opportunity to read many of Josephs poetry.
    His poems instills a sense of self worth and is very uplifting and heartfelt.
    His use of words are so very well put together and leaves very little to the
    imagination. Some can be funny and others can be very emotional. A true
    poet in all aspects. Many thanks to you from the depths of my heart. Love and
    peace!

    Joseph Anderson is one of the unique poets whose poems I've been priviledged to run into. He seems to always have the perfect concept, perfect lines, perfect words and the perfect rhymes to cap it all.

    Amazingly sharp of mind and agility of spirits, this veteran poet of eighty seven is indeed a treasure to English poetry.
    His poems, delivered in rhyming and lucid poetic diction comprising a plethora of experiences is a pleasure to read!
    I wish him many more years of creative career ahead! ! !

    You... our dear Joseph
    You are never Semi-Literate
    All the famous poets in the east and west
    They did not write and read but they
    Poeted the best poets on earth...
    Poetry doesn't need language
    It needs passionate deepest sense...
    And you have it all
    All are shinning there
    Will never vanish
    You will remain Immortal
    Like any dear poet
    Who were poeting before Jesus Christ...!

    Eighty-seven-year-old Joseph Anderson is an American treasure. This apt poet shares from a unique perspective. He writes passionately with the depths of wisdom, garnered over many years.

    Joseph’s poems warm the heart. His themes—some nostalgic and others contemporary—relate to everyday life. And his profound messages are very easy to grasp. It’s hard to stop at reading just one of Joseph’s poems, or to choose a favorite among them; they all are just that good.

    This 87-year-old World War II veteran has inspired many. And he has a lot yet to give. His days of inspiration are not over. And I wish him the best.

Best Poem of Joseph Anderson

Seasons Of Life

How like the seasons is our life,
We face the sunshine, storms and strife;
As seasons come, so they must go,
We are enjoined within that flow.

In spring we start our journey new,
When flowers bloom and skies are blue;
The trees are budding, birds will sing,
With youth in bloom, it's always spring.

'Tis summer soon, we are mature,
Face love and kids, home and career;
It's harvest time, success we seek,
These sounds of summer leave us weak.

Then autumn calls to have it's say,
The foliage falls, the hair turns gray;
The chill ...
