A Poemhunter’s Rendezvous Poem by Ernestine Northover

A Poemhunter’s Rendezvous

Rating: 5.0

In Stratford-on-Avon,
A Poet’s true haven,
We met as great pals,
The men and the gals.
What a wonderful setting,
For the magic of getting
To know everyone.
And there was the sun,
So radiant all day,
In this warm month of May.

And the place that was the hub
Was the Pen & Parchment Pub.
An excellent rendezvous
For the whole PH crew.
So with photos galore
Which were worth posing for.
We’ll remember this meet,
That was really upbeat.
And you can be sure
We'll no longer feel obscure

For we’ve met face to face,
In Shakespeare’s birthplace.
And a yearly convention
Should now be our intention.
As the great family feeling,
Was so very appealing,
And one thing is quite clear, .
We must assemble next year.
With more faces to see,
At this Poemhunter jamboree.

A great poem, Ernestine, describing the essence and the camaraderie of the meeting. Let's hope that this is the start of an annual pilgrimage. And what better place than Stratford? Thanks for this one. Love, Fran xxx

Hi Ernestine A lovely poem. It sounds like it all became real for you, rather than an internet experience. That was a lovely piece. Your subjects are so many and varied. Bravo to you Steve

Nothing finer than being locked away with a bunch of nuts and an endless amount on tap. Thanks
