This work has reached the exceptional level
Hello Jaybird: Please give my thanks to your daughter for typing and posting all your wonderful poems. Without her, we wouldn't get to enjoy all the beautiful stories that you write. So, to her, I also give a six-star rating.

As far as replying, it doesn't matter. I just enjoy reading your poetry. So, please don't worry about that.

Take care of yourself, my friend...Bill

This poem, My Apology, reminds me a bit of John Milton's
"When I Consider How My Light Is Spent":



When I consider how my light is spent
Ere half my days in this dark world and wide,
And that one talent which is death to hide
Lodg'd with me useless, though my soul more bent
To serve therewith my Maker, and present
My true account, lest he returning chide,
"Doth God exact day-labour, light denied?"
I fondly ask. But Patience, to prevent
That murmur, soon replies: "God doth not need
Either man's work or his own gifts: who best
Bear his mild yoke, they serve him best. His state
Is kingly; thousands at his bidding speed
And post o'er land and ocean without rest:
They also serve who only stand and wait."

I can only imagine the frustration. We look forward to your posts.

I have read some of your other work poetry so just keep writing. Send out your comments in your verse, just like today. There are lots of ways to communicate. Rhyme and verse are good ones. Don't stop.

A very well-written apology, and we sure [or most of us] will understand your dilemma and know how it feels to lack the energy or time to reply to reviews, as it is I find myself often behind a day or three. NS no apologies needed.

Oh my goodness, you have nothing for which to apologize. You're entertaining the readers with your poetry. Other people can say my writing is good or bad, or correct any errors I might make, but only you can write your poetry as you do, so continue doing that and I, at least, will be happy.

I enjoyed this poem very much. Artistically, your meter and rhymes work well but, even more than that, I appreciated the spirit in which this was written. You mentioned your issues not to gain pity or sympathy but, rather, to apologize for what they prevent you from doing for others. At the same time, you praise and thank your daughter and God. What could have been a depressing poem of age and ailments is, instead, an uplifting work of gratitude and pride, which made this a pleasure to read.

Please don't think this must be an "I read you now you must read me" situation. That's not how most of the goodhearted writers on this site work. I, for one, love your work...smile when I see a message you have posted and enjoy every one of your poems. I also rejoice that at 95 and nearly blind you remain involved with this passion for writing and love your daughter for helping you continue it. So very like you to be worried about responding in kind...but sir? Do not fret! I will read and enjoy and comment on everything you post...and I don't want you worrying that I expect or anticipate a review. Lot's of reviewers on site...ONLY ONE YOU! Bless you in your continued enthusiasm for writing and sharing!--Karenina
