I was inspired to write poetry after seeing the movie 'Dr. Zhivago', I wrote my first poem in 1970. Influenced by the poetry of William Shakespeare, Emily Dickinson, and Edgar Allan Poe; I am one of the few writers in the era of modern poetry who writes in the form I call 'rhythm and rhyme'.
After waiting more than 30 years for 'THE GIFT' of
poetry to arrive, I sat down at the age of 54 and
wrote for the first time with the ability to say
what I wished to say in the way I had long wished
to say it. In the next 18 months or so I wrote
nearly 180 poems.
Today, I am still an unknown and may be called 'an emerging ... more »

    I am not trying to be cruel or mean though I undoubtedly might, but you really need to work on your sound. I wrote things like this when I was in the 5th grade, though admittedly, a little less verbose and often with not so much subject matter at my disposal, but quite similar in simplicity. I enjoy your subject matter, but unless your audience is an assembly of the world's 4th graders, please spice it up a little, at least vary your line structure a little. You say you've read Shakespeare and Dickinson, but you're too uniform. Remember that on of the best parts of writing formal poetry, is breaking form to add import or delay understanding from line to line. Without variation, people might (as I admittedly had to fight doing out of respect to you) skip to the end or stop reading entirely. However, as a poet you have every right to continue in any way you wish. I just couldn't continue reading your work without at least voicing this. I really do enjoy the content.

    A fan (albeit, a critical one)

    sir,
    you are one of the best writers i have ever known. your poetry really mesmerises the reader to such extent that he cannot (even if he wants) stop reading. and every time a poem is read..it tells something more about you.
    a genius...you are sir.

    you write beautifully. (though this is an understatement)

Best Poem of GREENWOLFE 1962

Acceptance Of Fate

Of all the lessons learned in life
By every creed in turn,
Acceptance is the costliest
Mankind has had to learn.

The price is often self-esteem,
And life must yield as well.
It also charges interest,
On that, I shall not dwell.

But just by way of mentioning,
Though bitter is defeat;
Recovery sure is sweeter,
The sooner it's complete.

Acceptance of each circumstance,
Is one great truth of life.
But often comes at quite a cost,
Much suffering and strife.
