Sublime Rhyme Time! - Poem by Denis Martindale
Stand back, another's coming through!
Another poem's here!
Hello, hello, hello to you,
My precious, little dear...
And how are you, this fine old day?
I hope you're feeling fine!
What's that? You've got something to say?
Then tell me your first line!
O.K, that's written on the page,
What's next? I'm curious!
Come close, right here, on centre stage,
Be brave, victorious!
My word, you're such a pretty thing,
A bright light, all aglow...
I wonder what on Earth you'll bring?
I've simply got to know!
Oh, yes, I like that very much,
A sentimental theme...
The sort that's got the gentle touch,
A dream within a dream...
Now comes a picture from your heart,
Its story to unwind,
Oh, yes, now that's a work of art,
The kind I like to find...
Come close and whisper how it ends,
A secret I can share
With fellow poets and my friends,
Who for such poems care...
I love you, poem pal, sublime,
You trusted me today...
You granted me a time to rhyme,
I wish that you could stay...
But you must go, to someone new,
Some poet, young or old,
Another poem to get through,
Something as good as gold...
Go with my blessing, shine your light!
I'll miss you when you leave...
God bless the ones you help to write
The poems they receive...
