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! !
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 : ]
Wow...nicely said...is this Chuck? ? The pun-ster we all know and admire? ? ? : -)
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.
great wording chuck. love that!
the poem could be about you! (but then the title.......) (but then 'double bluff' and trickery......) (but then arghhh.............
Your skill and experience prove one point in this poem
'five lines are enough to make a great poem'
Hoe clever is that. Succinct. Loved it
A short but sweet poem. Beautiful with a flowing rhythm. Sincerely, Kathleen
True ode...small but smashing content.
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
