Poet's Notes about The Poem

We poets are oftentimes quite critical of ourselves, constantly searching for a better way to convey whatever it is we wish to impart.
'Red 2' is somewhat an expanded version of my original 'Red'. I wanted this one to rhyme. Plus, many more things that were red came to mind, and I wanted to add those.

    Excellent and inclusive but you get to the main point immediately - red lips and valentines. (Report)Reply

    Haha Barry, LOVE it! Spoken from the true heart of a man!

    There was a show on t.v.
    Called, Everybody loves Raymond.
    But on Poem Hunter, it's plain to see
    That Everybody loves Barry!
    He's gorgeous, sensitive, and sweet
    And brilliantly talented
    Lest I inflate his ego too much,
    For now, that's enuff said!
