Poets Never Sleep - Poem by Don Stratford

There seems a never ending line
Of verse and rhyming words
From the poets at Poemhunter
They come galloping in herds

A never ending stream of poems
To delight and make you laugh
From the pens of all you poets
As they come across my path

The styles they vary greatly
Some are glad and some are sad
And some are lovey dovey
But none of them are bad

But there seems to be a feeling
From one and all who travel here?
That we basically are all the same
We all come here to peer

To have our little say
Of what we think about the things
That effect us and our world
And to help us spread our wings

So to you all I’d like to say
God bless, keep writing please
‘Cause this is how I get my fix
To stop would be to tease

Thank you all

    Don, this is such a wonderful poem! ! It sums up how I feel about this website also. I love the poets here and I love being able to share my thoughts and let them bounce off others. You've said it.....the one thing that I find amazing is how ''alike'' we all really are. Pain is pain and joy is joy....no matter where you are. This is one of my favorites! Sincerely, Mary (Report)Reply
