    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


Hidden beneath reflecting waves
They spend both night and day
With the sub aquatic mandate
Be predator or prey

In briny deep or shallow ponds
Variety is rife
Shape, size and color myriad
A festival of life
