You've written an excellent rhymed poem: seventy-five years of poetry
has earned you a lifetime achievement pass. No need to reply.
Keep posting your wonderful poems, they bring joy.
Best wishes to you and your daughter.
You are both appreciated.
You are such a gentleman and QUITE a poet. This is a lovely piece of work, just as all are that I have read of yours in the past. You do not need to apologize for anything, just keep giving us your talent and life experiences. This is how we continue to learn, my friend. I am sixty and the best education I've received(and I have B.A. in Education) is from listening to those older and wiser! If your daughter has time (HA!) don't we all wish for THAT!, maybe she could randomly choose a number, like the day of the month and read you that poem and just type in your thoughts to review. BECAUSE I would love to have your input, but if that is not possible, PLEASE do not apologize. Just keep your work coming. It is a joy and education combined. P.S. You do NOT look 95!
Another simple, powerful, personal poem, Jaybird! Your poetry reflects honesty and revelation about you, your family, and friends, not something everyone is comfortable doing. You craft your autobiographical pieces so well- we are informed and emotionally invested, but not at the expense of good poetry. Accomplishing both is a talent! No need for an apology- your writing satisfies many here.
Congratulations on a very humble poem which speaks volumes about
your gentle caring heart.
Thanks so much for contributing and reminding me to be grateful for the gifts God has given me.
Well Jay I am most impressed with your poetic skill. Your sonnets are divine and as a lover of the form I always appreciate the opportunity to see how others use it, and you are a superb sonneteer and all around poet.
Many thanks for sharing your daughters efforts in coordination with you and I know I am not alone in just being happy you are here and sharing your creations with us. :)
Ninety five... WOW!! Now that is a good innings if ever their was one. The things you would have seen and lived through, the good and the bad...Nice! You certainly have no need to apologize friend, your fans and friends will read you regardless of you replying : )) I love the fact you still love to write and share your thoughts/poems etc. Awesome!
I sure do love your positive attitude about gratitude. It's good to know that your daughter is your companion too! You are indeed blessed. As far as those comments go, well, you can please all of the people some of the time, and some of the people all of the time... as the saying goes. We're all a little fragile regardless of age and circumstance, but that's part of our shared human nature, I think. Thank you for this one. It hits home!
