    Ruby,

    May I say this without sounding patronising? Since I'm not?

    There are some few poets who express popular sentiments in a personal way, from their heart - and not because they have a contract with Hallmark Cards! !
    And they say it, because it's from their heart, in a fresh, individual way.

    Whatever patronising (!) comments you may get on this site (from the men - you can trust the ladies!) , you deserve public recognition, and I hope that one of your friends can persuade a publisher to publish your poems. And now, if you have a relative who's computer-expert, you can publish as we have just done here at nil set-up cost, with lulu.com

    Thank you for your poems, and I look forward to reading more.

    Best wishes. Michael

Best Poem of Ruby Dodd

Old Greybeard

Well he dosen't really say much but he knows the ways of men
He's watched while men walked on the moon then journeyed back again

He's seen men dive beneath the sea and watched while wars were won
And he can name a thousand plants that grow beneath God's sun

And he can help you build a home or just chop down a tree
He always looks around him and remembers what he sees

Each night when he's through eating he washes up his plate
And goes into the bedroom to turn on channel eight

There he'll abssorb some knowledge before his day is done
Or just watch some ...

Read the full of Old Greybeard
