They maybe gone but never forgotten our poets and writers will always be in our hearts. They have enriched our lives so much we owe them so much.

    Thank you for the review, Barb. Are you trolling for inspiration? LOL I do that quite often. Have a great day.
    Stay in to be safe. Nancy:)

This is so beautiful, Nancy, and so descriptive of some of what drives the poet and motivates his work. Just don't forget that a poet can be driven just as easily by beauty and happiness as by ugliness and despair. As always, your rhymes are perfect and your poem flows very smoothly.

FYI, you wrote this on my 51st birthday.

    Really? Well Happy belated Birthday! LOL Thank you for the lovely review, Michele. I appreciate the kind words. Have a nice week and above all stay in and stay safe. Nancy:).

reply by Michele Harber on 13-Apr-2020
    Thanks, Nancy. Yes, George Washington and I share the same birthday although, despite how I look sometimes, not the same birth year.

    You?re very welcome for the review. As I?m sure you know by now, I truly love your writing.

    I?ve definitely been staying in and staying as safe as I can. I sincerely hope you and your loved ones are doing the same.

reply by the author on 13-Apr-2020
    Thank you again. Yes, we are hunkered down but Rhonda has to go for groceries occasionally. She is very careful though. Mark is our driver

reply by Michele Harber on 13-Apr-2020
    I'm just so glad that you have people with you. It would be horrible to be alone right now.

These stars are for the heart I feel beating inside the poems that you write and the clarity in which you say them. They are for the emotions that you build in the words that you choose. For the poems you write, are a dance and the dance is your soul. You are a very special person Nancy. I love this poem, keep writing. Your friend, Larry

    What an awesome uplifting review, Larry. You give me back a lot of the confidence I have lost this year. I have not been able to write much at all. I can't seem to get inspired. Thank you so much my friend, I appreciate the big six! Have a lovely Easter Sunday, but be safe. Nancy:)

Your poem is full of wisdom and sage advice Nancy . Your last line sums it up beautifully. Truly, none of us know what is in another's heart.
Excellent rhyming couplets and great meter.

Well done my friend.

Blessings for Easter and stay well.
Janet

    Happy Easter, Janet and thank you for the review and generous stars. All this Virus stuff is crowding out the fact Easter Sunday is coming up. I don't know why they couldn't have Easter services in their cars Sunday. God Bless and be careful my friend. Hugs. Nancy:)

    Our church is doing online services which is great but we are a little technologically challenged so we will see how it goes.
    Take care - Janet:)))

reply by the author on 11-Apr-2020
    That's nice, but a far cry from the real thing. God Bless You. Nancy:)

Very well said! My poetry comes from the heart, as I'm sure all poetry does. It is an art form just like painting or writing novels...and its worth its weight in gold. Thank you for your insightful verse.

Your last line sums it up well, Nancy. You are right. None of us know what is in another's heart. We should be open-minded and encouraging when anyone takes a chance and shares. Your lines read well, the rhymes are great as is the meter, and your message is loud and clear. Thanks for sharing. You are a talented poetess. Respectfully, Jan

Nancy,

Such a powerful message. In other words, if you haven't paid the price, sweated a bit, fought through thunder and lightning to find the sun again, don't pass by my posts to glibly share your fluff stuff to grab my money and zip on. Attention, folks. That's my heart and life on the page.

Yeah. I get it. Great job.
Thanks for sending back by.

Some things I noticed:
1.) Debilitating blows that strike the heart and (fester) there.

2.) Never judge a poet(')s work, [final stanza]

3 .) for it's a work of Art.
--> you capped 'Art' but not at the beginning. Is this intentional? I can see it-- just checking.

Thanks, again. Lovely!

    Thank you for the edit, Robyn. Isn't it strange how we can read right over our mistakes and never notice them. I always appreciate help when it makes my work more acceptable. Thanks for helping with that. Have a great day! Nancy.
