Patti Masterman

All the words that I gather,
And all the words that I write,
Must spread out their wings untiring,
And never rest in their flight,

Till they come where your sad, sad heart is,
And sing to you in the night,
Beyond where the waters are moving,
Storm darkened or starry bright.
~ W. B. Yeats

Popular Poems
Anti-Love Poem #1

When you've loved someone,
As much as you're capable of,
Just let them go. Even better,
Don't write about them- ever.

A House Breathes Through Its Bones

A house breathes through its bones,
Its summits sit like sentries;
Though rafters decompose-
It never denies entry.

A Dream For You

A dream for you
And one for me;
A mermaid's blue,
A symphony,

A Bear Came To Dinner

A bear came to dinner;
He ate before the bell,
He didn't use his napkin,
I am here to tell.

I Am That

Behind the movies scenes, behind the protagonist's smiles,
Beneath the orchestra's strings, back of the ticket booths,
There is a message found in all of this;
That this is the now, and you are here alive,

Wonderful Patti, I believe that in a hundred years hence or a thousand your words will still be read and then as now the reader will be pleasured and enriched! Well done and thank you

I am a teacher at a tiny school district in Texas. I discovered your work here as I was searching for poems which my students could present at the upcoming District UIL Competition. One of my students has taken an interest in your poem, Witchy-Poo. I must be able to document that the poem has been published in a book. At present, internet publishing is not accepted for the competition. Have you published in a book? If so, what was the title and publication date? Thank you for considering my request!

I have not even read your poems yet, Miss Patti..... Well, except for those on your biography page. And so here I sit, mesmerized by your prolific nature. 'I sit before a brilliant sheet of paper, you are going to write a poem, I say'........ I think this will be in the running for my own final epitaph! And surely it will be upon my mind, each and every time, I start a poem anew! Looking forward to reading your work. Oh, something I read on your page (your family would find you after death buried underneath thousands of pages of your poems) reminded me of my favorite poet Emily Dickinson, whose family and friends were shocked to find over 1800 poems stashed about her property - found after her death. She was unheard of before - but became famous long after her death. Currently she's seen as one of America's greatest poets.

I have read only a few poems of you but for each, a best impression. Your pen seem to give me the canvas, the colors, draws the sketch than gifted me food for thought, your poems I have found to be seeds for infinite freedom, thank you!

Patti Masterman is among the few poets that I admire so much. She manages to surprise me with her bold also untamed intellect and perception. Her expression is laconic and accurate, often resembling soft velvet and often again a precision compass to portray and analyze with accuracy her multi dimensional themes. Patti belongs among the Great Classics and not many will ever receive this recognition from me.

Madame Patti has not written nearly enough poems, I expect about another 2000 from her! If she was to ever stop writing, a part of my heart would wither away. And so for the sake of myself, and those like me, I beg her to continue to shower the world with her talent and wit.

It isn't about the words, it's about things that words cannot describe, well known as feelings, and I think that when you can make people feel them using just the words you become a poet, like mademoiselle Masterman.

So i randomly came across a poem you had commented on, what you said reminded me alot of something my dad would say so i decided to scope you out. It probably doesn't mean much coming from a 17 year old but i really enjoyed reading your poetry!
