Best Delysia Hendricks Poems

+ Fav Poet


Emotions diverse
'pon reading your verse
laughing and crying spontaneous
face a-beaming
tears a-streaming
joyful and sad smile-utaneous

My head is swollen
my heart all but stolen
wending across the vast pond
may stars shine my smiles
on you o'er the miles 
of whom I'm mutually fond

I'm honored;  moreover
positively bowled over
by your verse with acumen penned
of untold pleasure
your writ I will treasure
crack poet and much-cherished friend

    Hi Licia! How are you doing? For one who has not read Burns, I must say you're his namesake. The more I read you, the more I'm convinced you're using a variation of the Burns stanza, coupled with that of the Limerick; or rather the "standard Habbie". Take, for instance, your pub-crawling song, especially your pirate speak counter-balanced with Burns's Scottish (insecure) dialect. Good for you! As I said somewhere else, your rhythms are specifically sprung on the iamb. EGW. Wignesan

    Did you enter this tribute in my contest? I don't remember reading it. If I did not have it on the winners list I must have been temporarily out of my mind. It is a wonderful tribute beautifuly penned.

    Excellent rhyming verse of an ode to this poet. I have never read (or heard of) him. Your poem tempts me to read his writing.. where could I find this?
