    Your work is so wide ranging and yet in every
    poem you strike a responsive cord.

    It seems your talent know no limits.

    It was a pleasure to glimpse your heart,
    mind and soul.

    Moving through you work was like sailing a ship
    on a calm sea to an island of paradise.


  • Chester Roddingham (6/17/2009 11:21:00 PM)

    I note one of the comments listed here states
    there are nearly 25,000 poets on this site.

    I am indeed fortunate to have found you, though
    a friend of mine. She was true to the mark
    when she advised me I would spend a good
    deal of time reading you most fabulous work.

    I shall pass your link on to a few dear friends

  • Justin Tilliman (6/16/2009 9:31:00 PM)

    Frank, there a few that can coin a phrase like you.
    If one looks up 'wordsmith' in the dictionary
    they will find your picture.

    I am truly impressed by you body of work.

  • Terry Allencourt (6/16/2009 3:25:00 PM)

    As of today PoemHunter shows 310,931 poems.
    To be sure, yours are many of the best ever!

    They also list nearly 25,000 poets, surely you
    must be considered in the top 5% of such people.

    You writing is outstanding.

  • Geraldine Grandie (6/12/2009 10:28:00 PM)

    Frank, in your case the ratings scale should
    exceed '10' because you certainly deserve it!

    If you were not married I'm sure the ladies would
    be lined up at your door!

    Size counts-and your the bigest and best poet
    I have read in quite some time!

  • Ezra Harrison (6/12/2009 10:02:00 PM)

    I am happy to pass along your poems and remain
    convinced that others will love them as I do.

    I have placed many of your poems

    on my 'must read' poem list.

    You are a very talented man.

  • Darbie Shaw (6/11/2009 8:27:00 PM)

    I'm new here on PoemHunter. I have had the
    good fortune of landing here, where I have
    found some really great poetry!

    I read a great deal and you are definately one of
    the finest poets I have ever read.

  • Raymond Fairchild (6/8/2009 7:07:00 PM)

    Mr. Ryan:
    You are one of the finest poets
    I have ever read. Outstanding!

    I am not very good at being a sycophant, your words of course are exceptional, and you have a lot in cents of humor, to bad I canny give a few pounds of yours away...I am sure your reserve would still be full..wink, wink...enjoy more days than you already have..

Best Poem of Frank James Ryan Jr (FjR)

' Emeralds And Black Diamonds...

Lie down lass, with me, in sage green meadows
Your blouse flouncing open, in the teasing breeze
The meadows, feel so cotton, this time of year
Come lay beside me, and sense my desires.

Open field, honeysuckle....arouses my yen
For passion 'neath th' sparkle by th' mid-noon sun
No clouds abide our scape of choice to pleasure
So, again I ask you lass, come lay beside me.

Come close, love, as these hungry emerald eyes
Beg to stare into your warm, black diamond eyes
Take my hand in bond, I assure you, my lov',
That emeralds and diamonds never fade ...

Woman And Time...

Woman on a corner,
'Neath looming storm clouds,
Stands stoically gracefull,
Arms cossed and waiting,
For her Wall Street suitor
Who should have been there -
Twelve minutes ago;
Anxiety rears,
