A 'National Poet Laureate' - Poem by Jonathan Goldman a.k.a JGthepoet

How privileged am I to be,
Numbered amongst thee,
My fellow poets who also here,
Received this Accolade this year.

We are very fortunate to have
Poems acknowledged by fellows, who
Have posted verses on this site,
Day by Day, and Night by Night.

However many poems we write,
Reviewers always have the right,
To like or dislike our choice of verse,
Hoping new poems get better, not worse.

When we get reviews we do not like,
We should admit that they have the right,
But kindly encourage them to understand,
Why their Review was under-hand.

We hope someday that they will too,
Become 'National Laureates' like You,
These new Poet Members on this site,
Who are just learning how Reviews to write.
