    The proper Aussie poet, Mr. Robert Murray Smith,
    uses few words in messages; he goes to the pith***,
    unlike this Yank poet, known here as Edwards, Bri.
    Why is there such a difference? Hell if i know why!

    synonyms: essence, main point, fundamentals, heart, substance, nub, core, quintessence, crux, gist, meat, kernel, marrow, burden; informalnitty-gritty
    the pith of the argument

    he writes with a combination of pith and exactitude
    synonyms: succinctness, conciseness, concision, pithiness, brevity; More

    Robert is to me, a genuine poet, he is out there slam dunking poem after poem, and the zeal he has is to be admired for he has so many different pens, each with a voice of its own.

Best Poem of Robert Murray Smith

A Hauntingly Beautiful Word

Love is a hauntingly beautiful word.
Its essence flows over all endearing.

Enfolding, and caressing it glows bright.
Love is a word of joy for all to hear.

Its meaning is clear, and received dear.
Love means what it says, and in mind it stays.

Love is never lost but lives eternally.
Being in love is a sight to behold by all.
