There is a poet on this site

There is a poet on this site.

There’s a poet on this site
Who’s stuff I read a lot
Who writes in rhythm, and in rhyme
Such a gift this poet has got

The poems aren’t arty, not at all
They’re simple words to read
But me I like them every one
I really do, indeed.

A lot of folk just pass them by
Which really is a shame
Because this person writes real well
This one who I won’t name

A simple bloke just like myself
These poems appreciate
They’re wrote for simple folk like me
 With education not too great.

This poets poems, I read each day
 They, I do like to read
Each day I much enjoy these poems
I really do indeed

    And he looks at you as being the same. A very well written poem Peter, But you should have looked into a mirror when you wrote this. Because the true poet is you....Your good friend.....Roger

    Thank you Sara. I am not smart enough to understand a lot of poetry, so simple stuff really appeals to me. They are indeed eucalyptus trees, my friend...Peter

    Oh I just noticed for the first time that each poem can be rated. but it doesn't indicate which is better a high or a lower number. LoL

    Hi Paddy, Thank you for your kind comments. I always seem to forget these ratings, And who am I to rate folk, anyway??I'm a writer not a judge and I know nothing about poetry. Oh and seven is the highest rating.Yes, it is good to love your own stuff, cause it is you.....Peter

    What a wonderful tribute to your unknown poet. I too appreciate simple direct poetry and think it is the essence of all good work. Thank you for your nice comment about my poem "A Meditation" Your comment was nice. Its good when you feel pleased about one of your own poems.
