Dan's Fan Club

Hey diddle diddle
We poets that fiddle
With poems that jump over the moon.
Sometimes we blunder
and often will wonder
am I just a poet buffoon?

Then out of the blue
a comment ensues
that gives us a new point of view
Dan Kearley comes here
with a comment to cheer
His applause like the thundering air!
We can discard our fear
that we are friendless or queer
and soon we are smiling a tune!

His name is Dan Kearley
You must know him, oh, surely?
He writes with a flair of his own!
His poems are quite awesome
He comes from Wisconsin
with friendship that lands everywhere!

No.......this is no joke!
He cheers all the folks
Who stay up by the light of the moon
Even little dogs laugh
While the rest of us grasp
He's a friend of the Soup, near and dear!

    Yep, you KNOW him! Congrats. I just saw this the other day and now on the winner list. BTW, I enjoyed your comments on the blogs of Archaic poet. It always amazes me how often you say things that are exactly what I am thinking too.
