+ Fav Poet


p aul, to hear his name reminded one of apostles
a n ordinary man given to extra- ordinary actions
u n dieing in his legacy to children and the needy
l aughter always edged the corners of his eyes
n ewman, what a named revelation, Paul Newman
e nergized by a thirst for the fullest life
w as there ever a more complete man, this legacy
m arried for fifty years to Joan, fathering six children
a nd still one of the best actors the screen has ever seen
n ewman, a man’s man, a woman’s dream and a  star.

January 26, 1925 – September 26, 2008

    Did you mean fathering six children? Great tribute to Paul. I am also a fan. Talent and character an unbeatable combination.

    Love this acrostic, Debbie! I agree with Kim, good choice on the actor to write about! Well done, many hugs! :)

    Great acrostic on a wonderful actor. Well written. From comments on F/B page (P &P) I admire your knowledge on formats, and would appreciate some advice. Are 'name poems' just 'name poems' or can they be acrostic and name poems, as you have done here. I wrote a poem called "I am a Poem", trying to use Acrostic format--would appreciate if you took a look and could advise me. Thanks Debbie.

    A Name Poem, or Acrostic Poem, tells about the word. It uses the letters of the word for the first letter of each line. You know name could be a sub category.

    Perfect choice........not only as a "dream-boat", actor, but as a human being who cared about his fellow man! I fell in love with his blue eyes in "Cat On A Hot Tin Roof" when I was a kid !

    DEBBIEEEEEEE....You surely know how to pick them! Those amazing blue eyes! Wow! What a looker! :) mentioned apostle Paul...MY FAVORITE BIBLE WRITER! My Bible is underlined left right and center with gems from his epistles! :) Lovely write! I echo Andrea's question: why an acrostic? PS...thanks for being there for me today. I'm better now! :)

    So what inspired you to do an acrostic, Debs? ARe you going to do a contest maybe? I remember some acrostic contests here a long time ago. paul Newman was a fantastic guy and he even got into the food industry at the end? Did you ever buy his products? I enjoyed this tribute to a great man.
