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...!
i love your poem cause my dad is in the military and he has to go over seas sometimes and fight but you poem said so much more to me then what i exspected and keep up the good work cause that was a really good poem
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.
The Candle's Burning Low
We met down at the city park, Where old folk often go And today he seemed unduly sad. His thoughts were causing woe.
He spoke and this he told me, In a mood of reverie; ''I hope the things I've said or done Will merit memory.
