    When I read your bio (purely factual I'm certain, but only partly Truth) , there was an ad on your page, touting a man who had invented a system to restore your 20/20 vision. He looked like an Iowan, so I'm sure he must have been you (after all I graduated from the U of I, so I know what an Iowan looks like) . My guess, from the photo, is that you - like me - are 77 years old, but you may not have been 77 for quite as many years as I have. Six children is not the predestined number; that's seven. My wife and I have five and a dog. Obviously we all have some work to do. Bon soir.

    your bio is the best.

    I liked the poem you wrote called I can promise only this. I see you have a lot of fans so, I'm honored you commented on my work...Thank you again. I also liked your Biography and your work is interesting. I'm sorry your a recluse but, guess I am to a certain point. You had six children! Wow...that's a task in itself. They must all be proud. You take care and God Bless. :)

    The sequel to the Bible(?) , 'The Bobbel.' - should probably have been more appropriately titled 'The Babel' - :) - in any event I'm sure to enjoy reading your poetry Kelly... Your introduction 'biography' page is very humorous!

    Poet Kelly Kurt.

    Once you've read him,
    You cannot stop,
    For not all poets touch the heart,
    But Kelly Kurt has that fine Art.

Best Poem of Kelly Kurt

I Can Promise Only This

You can ask anything of me and I will attempt
You can tell me to smile, when grief is my shadow
You can stick me with pins and require my stillness
Take all my possessions and demand more
You can mandate the improbable and I will comply
But I can promise only this
To do my best

Read the full of I Can Promise Only This

The Ides Of March

One hundred fifty-four days
That’s how long it’s been
One hundred fifty-four days
It may seem silly to a Texan
Or a Floridian
But it has been one hundred fifty-four days
Since it has been seventy degrees
I have lived in the upper Midwest for six decades
Every year I count the days between the last
