    Michael Shepherd is the Gandalf of this site, who reads and debates on the forum with wisdom, wit and warmth. He is a master wordsmith with a lifetime of experience. His poetry is interesting and recognizable and often beautiful. He has charm, style and irreverence and an overwhelming spirit of love and acceptance. Michael Shepherd is my hero and I salute him.

    My nickname for this beloved friend is Grandfather Wisdom, GW for short. Michael is truly a man among men, with a deep technical knowledge of poetry, and with the heart to go along with that wisdom, and a wicked sense of humor.

    Knowledge, heart, humor - what more could a person ask for in a writer? Nothing but a man like Mike! !

'Give what you think you lack -
You feel unloved? Then give love, and love, and love...'...

On the other hand -
Do you have any better advice?

to catch those glories half-formed in the mind,
those tantalising visions which we see
for fleeting seconds; fear may never find

again; yet leave a presence in the air,
the evanescent substance of a dream,
like half-remembered, half-forgotten care,
but known to be more real than they seem;
