Five Stars

*Dedicated to Andrea Dietrich, Caleb Smith, Isaiah Zerbst, Anne Currin, and Eileen Ghali

I'll start with illustrious Andrea,
our talented sonneteer.
She peppers our poems with kindness, 
with comments so bright and sincere.

Next, we have Mr. McCaleb,
our sweet gent from Arkansas
From KOs to boogers to nature,
he writes without limit or flaw.

Now, I must turn to Isaiah,
the master of meter and rhyme.
His poems are most reminiscent
of forgotten ages in time.

I cannot forget our Queen Anne,
who graces us all with her songs.
Her lyrics tug at our heartstrings, 
yet she's upbeat, lovely, and strong.

Last but not least is Eileen,
the most spirited poetess.
She translates feeling to verse
and writes with such skill and finesse.

    Great choices! I don't know the work of them all, but I intend to. Andrea, Caleb, and Anne are on my list of favorites too. Recognition is certainly warranted. Jack

    This is so lovely, and I am touched you included me on the list. You and I have so much in common, Heather. I love your poetry and I love the ones you chose to emulate here. for example, Caleb, who I also included in my own tribute. Eileen is one, I am afraid to say, that I don't know too well, so I will be sure to check her out. I think I actually already saw her earlier today! This goes to Fave naturally, but I sure hope to see one of the other several I faved of yours in my contest. Hurry!

    Heather!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm flying high! Oh my! How did you know I needed this boost??? Perhaps you read the conversation between Caleb and me on my poem...Favorite Poet? ;) I'm so honored and so happy! Your talent is amazing, and to know that you actually like my work is a true true blessing. I've been quiet discouraged and this was a bit of sunshine in a gloomy day! HUGS GALORE!
