    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

Night In An Empty Church

Civil war soldiers said their goodbyes here
Brides, in their flowing white gowns, marked their happiest days here
Countless masses and funerals for sixteen decades were held here
Tonight, empty, the hollow church weeps silence
Thick stone walls hold the chill
Stained glass distorts moon beams into phantasms
Walking up the spiral staircase, lonely creaks denote my every step
Seated, in the back row of pews, I hear the voluminous chapel hiss
Like the whispers of the long gone congregation
