An Ode To A Modest Poet Poem by Chuck Audette

An Ode To A Modest Poet

Rating: 5.0

Laurels, roses for you abound
and yet you seek the firm of ground
but no thorny truth lies there settled
just honest praise in guise soft-petalled

Modestly spoken... as modesty is your forte, Charles. In a sense autobiographical, I'd say. Well done! ! Brian

Chuck, nicely worded and presented, a lovely ode to one who undoubtedly deserves it! A wonderful departure from your signature style. You are more versatile than you knew, perhaps. Esther : ]

I read and re-read this earlier today when I saw it posted as a comment. Love the intensity of this and the classical tone. A superb ode to someone deserving of such praise. Nothing less than brilliant Chuck. Justine.

Very powerful ode Chuck. I was trying to work out who it is for but I can't, thought I knew but now I think I'm way off track! Brilliant scribing. HG: -) xx
