    WES Vogler is simply wonderful poet and a great human being. He has excelled in the art of writing limericks. He is self made and a poet of uniqueness in the great sense of humor, choice of words showing his mastery over the language and infinite experience. His poetry is simply heart throbbing, awesome and fantastic. Wes is the master of the limerick and translator of old jokes and sayings.
    I wish he delivers for 100 more autumns.
    Regards,
    Subhas

    Great Limericks, brilliant cartoons. But there's a whole lot more to Wes. The advice he often gives to others is always helpful and it is appreciated. It's one of my favorite go-to sites. Oogie is great but his collaborations with Kelly Kurt are superb too. Of course we all know he's not 86. My guess is that he's an incredibly gifted teenager!

    Twenty-two years with the telephone company as a records clerk and twenty-two years as the proprietor of a second-hand book store, Babbling Books
    and the next twenty-two years he will spend sharing with us his fabulous Oogie comic strip.
    Wes is the master of the limerick and has inspired me to write many more of them than I would have otherwise. Thanks, Wes!

    WES Vogler is a wonderful poet and a great friend. He has distinguished himself in the art of writing limericks. His great sense of humor, timing and mastery over the language and vast experience with keen observation make him a school in his own right which serves as a guiding institution to the likes of me. His poetry is simply awesome and fantastic.

    You are a very good writer and i do enjoy reading your work. I also agree that without rhyme and form, it is not must of a poem. However, I have written cinquain, haiku, nonet, and rictameter and these forms have no rhyme. Limericks are harder to write (for me) and so I admire your mastery of it and am so thankful Poemhunter has one who writers them. Best regards and hoping to read more of your poems.

    I read a couple of your limericks today. They made quite an enjoyable read. Thanks to your poems, I understood the exact meaning of a limerick today. I love the way you goad the wayward thoughts into a distinct pattern...Not everyone can do that...

    Wes is a force to reckon with. He knows his rhyme and his meter which was drummed into him mercilessly by the Oedilf workshop. With his release from that site he has flowered into an entertaining and humorous translator of old jokes and sayings into limerick form.220 and going strong on the Poemhunter site in just over a month. (some 50 or so resuscitated from his Oedilf submissions) Give
    him a look-in for a giggle and some good reading. This man is 85 years old and has acquired a sense of good taste and showmanship. (The Grandma Moses of limericks?)
