Scarlett Treat - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Scarlett,
Treat me to your insights.
Your thoughts with wit,
So delight.

And Scarlett,
I must say
If not for you...
I would not feel as much encouraged,
Had not your comments
Made more sense and cleared my view!

Scarlett,
Treat me to your insights.
Your thoughts with wit,
So delight.
I just can not sit knowing you are right...
And knowing I had perhaps been wrong,
By not accepting a reflection of me,
With belief.
I see that clearly now...
Scarlett Treat.

And as I write,
High on a consciousness
I am blessed with that excites.
Thank you Scarlett for your 'wit treats'.
They have provided a wider vision,
For a mind like mine
That feeds to nourish
This mental appetite that loves to bite on wit!

    WELL! Here is the truth of the matter...I was so very flattered when Lawrence sent this very wonderful tribute to my mailbox! But now I am REALLY blushing Scarlet
    to this! I am so complimented...and all because I enjoyed Lawrence's work. He is a wonderful poet whom I just discovered, and I look forward to reading much more of his work....

    Thanks, Lawrence! !

    I can honestly say, I know she will Lawrence. A great Lady and her wit is slick. Nice tribute here. Hurry up Scarlett, before it disappears down the poem list as it is especially for you.
    Love and hugs Ernestine XXX
