    You are a serious poet. Your poems are beautiful and powerful.

    Rich, I stopped commenting on your poems around 45ish because I was embarrassed at the 'embarras de rich-esse' of my praise... may I repeat, migh you fling modesty aside and persuade some publisher to give your work permanence? I know I'm supported heartily by many readers here.

    Thanks for your support and commentary. I've just started reading thru your work here. St F of A - a lady after my own heart. And I think Duluth is colder than Machiasport!

    Dear Rich,
    I should be calling you sir Rich, you are an amazing historical poetical genious of the classical tradition, yet many of your poems transcend classification. Not knowing it, I already have your Geode poem on my favorites list- i've just read over 1/2 of your poems, but its approaching 1 am here and i have work early in the morning- i will be thinking all day tomorrow of how rich and deep your poems are- its amazing that you dont have a book published, you certainly deserve one, and im sure if you tried hard you would be published- thanks for your praise of my own work- i've only had 1/2 your life experience, which i will use as my excuse for any short coming in my own poems, and i sincerely hope that a when i come down the line a bit that i can write as good and richly as you do- i wish i had the capability of recall which you seem to have- anyway, you're poems are great- Lenchen likes them and she's one of the top poets on the site- hope you keep writing and i look forward to reading the rest of your poems tomorrow- Also, thanks so much for comparing me to Lawrence Ferlingetti (sp?) - i love his work, but am not as familiar with it as i am with some of his contemporaries- Corso, Ginsberg, Kerouac, Burrows, but i read a lot of his poems after your comments, and he's a great poet, so thanks for the comparison- thanks again so much

    Your poems are engaging to read
    unfortunately my understanding of mythology
    aren't up to speed.
    Alas...they are magical. :)
