    Ernestine,
    It's great to see you back as No.1! ! There are some that grumble you should
    not be No.1. They loudly proclaim how great they are and in their poems, they
    think using complicated words with thought, makes them a genius. Well in my humble opinion, that is merely, mental masterbation. If these loud mouths are so great, where are their poems in the top 500?
    YOU HAVE TWO POEMS IN THE TOP TWENTY!

    They will never understand that communication with a persons feeling and heart is the cornerstone of poetry. You do that as with other great poets like,
    Maya Angelu, Pablo Neruda and Langstion Huges, all people who are constantly
    in the top five of the top five hundred poets.

    There are a lot of great poets on poemhunter,
    who are happy for you and congratulate you.

    ERNESTINE, LET NO ONE CHANGELLAGE
    YOU BEING No.1! IF ANYONE KNOWS
    HOW TO WRITE AND SPEAK TO ONES
    HEART...IT IS YOU.
    LADY, YOU ARE WHERE YOU BELONG.
    NUMBER ONE!

    2 person liked.
    2 person did not like.

    I noticed among nearly 12 thousand poets, this
    week YOU WERE CHOOSEN AS No.1!
    You've beaten a lot well know poets!
    Ernestine, my sincere congradulations!

    Anyone who has not read your poetry yet is in for a real treat. Your style is witty, pretty, and I think unique. You write poems because you love writing poems, and that comes out in them. Well done. Sincerely, David.

    I have been reading your poems and am enjoying them so...much! I think you have such a wonderful way of writing and I look forward to reading more from you. I am so glad I found your poems, they are a real treasure. Sincerely, Mary

Best Poem of Ernestine Northover

Hold You In My Smile

Sweet moment, stay with me,
and pray do not flee so soon,
Let me enjoy the bliss of that
first kiss beneath the moon.
I wish to cradle this feeling,
that has only just been found,
A feeling that has unexpectedly
turned my world around.
Do not depart, Oh please remain
within my heart awhile,
So that I can savour you once more,
and hold you in my smile.

High Flyer

They were 'Proctors' and 'Jackaroos' in those days.
Single wing aeroplanes,
two and four seaters,
either open engines, or open under your seat.

Exciting for a seventeen year old.

I went up with the commercial pilots,
logging up their flying hours.
