I offer this poem as a toast!
To the poet, I admire the most!
His talent is , second to none!
He's written hundreds of poems, I've read every one!

From reading the poems he's amassed,
I find his range of emotions is vast!
He's a genius of Rhythm and Rhyme!
I'm impressed and amazed, every time!

To me he's a Poetic Master!
He can make me feel joy or disaster!
Love and Greed and Compassion are,
just a small part, of his large, repertoire!

Larry Belt, is my favorite, for sure,
he's a Poetry Soup, Connoisseur!
