A Humble Poetic Tribute

Rating: 3.9
Just a word of sincere thanks
To a friend I met on PH
One to whom I owe a huge debt
Not of the current toxic variety
But one that I can never repay
He has always been a positive critic
Making me aware of poetic logic
And the nuances of this fine art
All of which are truly important
For the uninitiated making a start
I am now encouraged to explore
New techniques and to read more
As I am clearly and reasonably convinced
That if the right interest is evinced
Even a mediocre poet can aspire
To bring into his poetry some fire
Thank you Michael
For this poetry lesson

(Dedicated to Michael Harmon - a very talented poet on PH)

He deserves a tribute, for he is wonderful, humble and one heck of a writer. Anyone is well advised to check out his latest writings. And Sandra is the perfect one to pen a beautiful tribute because she can hold her own in the poetic world, and also is humble, sweet, and my good friend! (smile)
