I know I don't have long now, so I have filled in my death year on this page.
I am 63 years old, much older than anyone expected me to achieve, considering my obesity, and I have deleted a bunch of poems, which leaves me with 63 poems here, one for each year of my age. That, in itself, is kind of poetic, isn't it? more »

    Dear Belle,
    are you still with us? I have read your " Farewell" poem and it is magnificent.
    I hope that you are just lying low for a while and will be back entertaining us again. If not, it has been a pleasure reading your poetry. You have inspired me on more than one occasion, and I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
    God be with you and keep you.
    Kim Barney

    Father is always right. I like Belle too. But I adore La Belle. I like Bella too like Bellissima.

    Ronnie is a promising, phenomenal poet of immense raw talent. His unique storytelling ability can transport you to another time and place.
    Stop in and visit his poems- - It will be time well-spent, and you'll come away feeling renewed and refreshed.
    And, shouldn't that be the purpose of poetry, anyway?

I could have been a... "

Right there she paused and thought a bit,
then went on as before:
"There's plenty worse things I could ...
