An Ode To A Modest Poet - Poem by Chuck Audette

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

    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 (Report)Reply

    Wow, Chuck! This is excellent! I expected a humorous poem which is typical with your wonderful wit, but I found this to be superbly written, showing your breadth. Thanks for a wonderful write about a 'grounded' poet. Have a wonderful evening! Beth (Report)Reply

    Quite the best review I've seen! Such a wild departure from your usual lighthearted fare, and the high quality of this work belies your own modesty with regard to your own skills. Touching and sensitive words that will sit happily with all that's best in poetry.
    Thank you :)

    Ah, CT...
    Another side of you, perhaps? I like it very much.
    Still miss your 'punny' side @ poetry.com. Hope baby and tiles are coming along well.

    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. (Report)Reply

    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 : ] (Report)Reply

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