+ Fav Poet


I never knew I'd be in heaven
In the autumn of my years,
Or that I'd be immerged
In the brilliant art of words,
Or float above operatic notes,
Or view ballet through
My elated tears.

I never thought I'd meet
Inspiration face to face,
Or feel it rise within me
With a poet's surrendering grace.
I just know that I'm contented
As profound love keeps flowing
From my impassioned heart.
This is the gift that artists
Of this world yearn to impart.

    You have so much to be contented about Connie and it is wonderful to find people who are grateful for this gift. Confusion and despair are the norm so enjoy every moment of your peace. Love Elizabeth

    The drive for self expression is in all, but so few find the way to let it out so creatively.

    connie, I was also thinking of a good title for Gruesome twosome!! The problem with that footle is that it is too unoriginal. well, Too fast to last is not original either but at least it fits the contest theme exactly. hahaha. Can you think of a better title for mine than Zsa zsa marriages!!
