Kelly Kurt (Limerick)

Rating: 5.0
Of all the poets in the west
He is the best, he is the best
His name is Kelly Kurt
Not one soul would he hurt
Master of seriousness and jest

It is a Limerick not intended to make fun of Kelly Kurt. Rather a fun way of honouring the great poet that I and many others consider him. And honouring the exemplary human being he is.

I have been reading Mr Kurt's poems and his comments. He is an excellent contributor to the community here. A wonderful limerick Mr Parray. Thanks for sharing.

I agree with you completely.. Kelly is perhaps the most wonderful member here at PH. His poems are beautiful, but his comments and the manner in which he inspires the new poets here is just incredible.. Thank you for sharing this Ayman.. It's a beauty :)

Thanks Souren, I am glad we agree. The only thing better than Kelly's writing is his ability to inspire others.

Couldn't agree more. Kelly Kurt is the best. I have a poem about him as well, since he won 50 dollars in my August contest.

A nice tribute, Ayman. Kelly has encouraged and tutored me as well. Always willing to take time to answer questions and offer good will. His poems defy any style; ranging from silly to beautiful to profound.

Thanks Michael. It is really heart warming to learn that my friend. I used to think I am the only apprentice but now it seems he has found one much younger and stronger :)

Indeed, he has influenced me as a writer and a human being. And is there anything greater than to inspire positively. While we all try to destroy and belittle each other, Kelly is among the few who try to preserve and protect the earth and its dwellers.

Delighted to read a poem on Kelly Kurt.. It is not easy to find a combination of a great poet being a great human being as well. Vow! Ayman! It is wonderful to see such friendship and respect for each other.
