Robert Andrew Lyle

Robert Andrew Lyle
He’s a man who joined this site
He’s written sixteen poems right now
All filled with sweet delight

And yet so few do notice him
I don’t know why this be
To me, he’s rather brilliant
Just have a look and see. 

He speaks of leaving our dear site
And this would be a shame
I would like to think that folk
Will get to know his name

I love to read these poems he writes
And it would be so great
To see him get a lot more comments
On the stuff he does create.

    Getting read is the cunundrum. Having someone say they get the humdrum. After all, it's the writing that inspires us. But it's very nice when someone makes a fuss. So Robert Andrew Lyle, I'll have go and check your style. And when the world keeps turning round. Remember that what goes around comes around. :) Peace. :) Good on ya' mate. :):):) Now it's time to validate.

    Now I have to check this poet out. Sometimes, if we don't know of certain poets, it's because they don't bother to stop by. I agree with Andrea..... Peter, . Take care & enjoy Valentine's Day with family and friends. :) ~SKAT

    Thanks Ilene, I suppose you are right about our styles, It never came to my attention til you said it. He deserves the comments of others, and I hope he realizes that he will have to reciprocate. Thank you for your comments, my friend....peter

    this is very nice of you. I think the people who come here need to realize that they won't get comments unless they give them. When I first came, very few people were reading or commenting to me. I had to spend hours reading other poems and commenting. If he is a friend, you need to tell him this. Anyway, I will go check him out!!

    Thank you Andrea. I did tell him this a few weeks ago, but I don't know if he got the message. I just thought I could help him get looked at, as he is a fine poet. Now I consider that I have pointed folk in his direction. And what happens, happens. I appreciate your comments, my friend...peter

    Thank you Peter for such a wonderful poem to make people aware that I am here. I am humbled indeed. Thank you so much for dedicating your time to writing such glowing words about my poetic abilities. I am a simple poet and i would like feedback on my work so can't understand how 200 people can look at a poem and not comment. Poetry is not about how far up the list we climb but sharing life with others. Thank you Peter you brought me to tears with this work. Your friend in deed. Andy Lyle

    You are most welcome Andrew. When I first came on the site, I got very few comments, until I started commenting on others work, and entering a contest every now and then. Now I get my fair share of comments, and it is good to get feedback. You are affine poet, And I just pointed you out to the others here.

    I understand his predicament, I was there when I first joined this site! Nobody gets much recognition when they first join, that's just the way it is! I know that isn't fair and it shouldn't be that way but people just don't know who he is yet! The key to get recognized...comment on others poetry, then he will be recognized! I didn't know of him until now! This is a grand dedication to him my friend! What an outstanding poem, Great Work!!

    Thank you so much Russel, for your very kind words. You are right my friend, and I have told him this. But now at least folk will know he is there. Not only are you a great poet, you are kind and very generous with your comments. I appreciate this, my friend....peter

    A good tribute Peter,I will advise Robert to read Andrea's '' A time of change'',he will simply understand why he will need to stay.

    A nice dedication. But does Mr Lyle comment on many other's poetry? Tell him not to go yet, as on your advice I, and I'm sure many others will be over to visit. Good to see you back. Sorry I was slow, but I've been away, getting a tan.

    Thank you Scott for your kind words. I think that if Robert wasn't aware before, he most certainly is now. He does write nice poetry and he is worth a read. Hope you got a good tan. If not come to West Australia. It will probably be in the thirties for the next few months. Have a good day, my friend....Peter
