    In lieu of commenting on every single one of your poems, I will just say it here: Mary, you are the unofficial documentor of everyday life's beauties here on PH, and I must say I've seen your work progress from sweet to downright excellent. Your comments on poems and the Forum add so much to the group; we are lucky to have you here! Sincerely, Lori

    Mary's works show an amazing intelligence in operation. Her ability to transcend the mundane (such as peeling eggs) and present the reader with something that potrays the untypical, is truely awesome. Mary came to this site with passable pieces, that maintained a skilled method. She quickly rummaged through other writer and saw that there was no need for conservatism and now writes some of the best free verse around.

    Her humility (especially on the Forum) is only matched by the respect that she has gained from her colleagues on PoemHunter.

    Mary, you write with honesty and kindness, you invite people to know you! You will never know how grateful I am to know you!

    I just read all of Mary's poems, and then read them again. Yep, they're still awesome.

    Mary-I have been reading your work as well and think you have such a great way with words. There is a lot of stuff out there parading as poetry that I haven't much praise for but your work is different. Your poetry is refreshingly unique and very well-written. You are a true poet!

Best Poem of Mary Nagy

Father And Son

You're standing in the doorway.
Your workday is all done.
He waits to see you everyday,
this boy that is your son.

He hopes you will go fishing.
He hopes you'll shoot the gun.
He just wants to be with you,
this boy that is your son.

He is your spitting image.
To him you are ''The One''.
He hopes to be just like you,
this boy that is your son.

You show him what a man is.
You teach as you have fun.
You are admired as well as loved
by this boy that is your son.

You've got a friend forever.
Until the world is done....

The Walls Are Crumbling

As I tried to grasp some meaning
from within her silent cries,
I felt her soul reach out to me
from deep within her eyes.

I saw the walls were crumbling
and falling to the ground.
Perhaps this is a fresh start
the two of us have found.
