Thank You, Dear Poets Poem by Shannon Chapel

Thank You, Dear Poets

Rating: 5.0

Thank you to my poet friends
Whom I’ve met on this site.
Your inspiration never ends
Not morning, noon or night.

Your lovely words have made me smile
And some have made me cry.
I read your work, and all the while
My spirit’s flying high.

There’s Mary, C.J., Moya, too
And David Darbyshire.
There’s Ernestine, but I’m not through
More names I do require.

There’s Slimboydim and Denis Joe
And Jeremiah Shine.
There’s Herbert and Uriah, so
Each piece will be divine!

I’m sure there’s more whose work I love
Whose work has touched my soul.
But I’ve been robbed by those above
And each one’s played a role.

Each one of you have reached right through
This screen and stole my heart.
What you mean – I wish you knew
Mere words can not impart.

I thought that when I joined this site
That it would entertain.
But that was only partly right
Allow me to explain.

You’ve become real friends to me
Upon you I depend
To always write, thus guarantee
P.H. will never end.

So thank you so, my poet friends
You bring the world such joy
And in respect this poet sends
One I hope YOU’LL enjoy.

Shannon, this was perfect! I love rhyming poems (obviously) and this one had the flow of perfection! I feel the same way about all the folks here (you included!) It is strange but so true! This is so nice and I am very honored to get a mention. Sincerely, Mary

Sorry I missed this one Shannon, but last night, one of our dogs became ill and everything went haywire, so I didn't have anytime to read anything on Ph. This is a lovely poem indeed, I think it is hard to express how one feels about everyone on this site, they are all so 'smashing' and feel so 'family' it's really great. You have said all that in your poem which is lovely. Love Ernestine XXX PS Thanks for giving my name an 'airing' too!
