Poetry Heaven

Last night I went to bed at eleven
And dreamed I went to Poetry Heaven.
Keeper of the Gate was not Saint Peter
But Robert Frost - - hey, what could be sweeter?

The first person I saw up there
was sitting in a golden chair.
It was my good friend, Hank Beuning,
And a golden guitar he was tuning.
Hank, I said, I've known you for years.

Note: On 24 March 2015 this poem was selected as Member Poem of the Day. This was the first of five of my poems to be selected.
Thank You, Poem Hunter!

Another Note: at one time this poem was # 248 on the top 500 poems, but I have deactivated it several times to see which other poems Poem Hunter would put in its place, and the last time I checked, it had dropped completely off the top 500.

I wanted to edit this poem, specifically the poet's notes, but I can't find how to edit with the new format. I just checked the top 500 member poems, and this poem is back in the top 500 at number 219!

THE NEW PH FORMAT IS DISASTROUS. I THINK CLICKING ON, above, will take you to a page to write a complaint. PH is now Poetry H + + l.

I totally agree, it's like they conspired to make it 10 times worse, I detest the change!
