Best Dana Smith Poems

+ Fav Poet


How to contain the blossom of dreams, The beginning of life, or a fire's first spark. . How to maintain composure, and poise When morning's first light has smothered night's dark- How to express ones deepest emotion, Whether it's anger, or depression, or love, How to captivate the purest devotion Without the most perfect word to speak of. . When love has risen and absorbed all truth, From around you, and then deep inside, How to convey the passion within, With the tradional word 'love' to abide? Such words could never express this passion. . No matter how often they're spoken; Like how nothing could ever keep me away, No matter the times I've been broken.

    Dana, I read your poetry all the time...~ Did you really think I'd leave without stopping by to say Good-bye. Never, Muwahahahaha! Why the word alone sounds -forever and difficult. LOL, I love this place and the poets. A couple of soup friends and I are taking a short vacation. REMEMBER! The Best Thing About Leaving is the "RETURN." I will leave in good faith, in hopes you don't forget me, and you are looking forward in having me visit you and your poems in the future. HAHA, I will bring a new me when I return. "I Can't wait to see you again:) If you ever want me to read a certain poem or you wish to say hi... Drop by my E-Mail Address. :) Sincerely yours ~Always & Forever~ The Sweet Poet Destroyer

    No words can express the kind of passion you write of and yet you have come very close. A beautiful poem. Blessings, Rhonda
