A Poet Master

With a master's hand and the strokes of a pen
the stage is set and the play began.

With eloquence and dash he strums 
the cords of life and enfolds them
into verse for this, his audience's delight.

He has once again reached the heart and mind
of all who attend with strength of pen 
and words by measure of depth finite.



This came to me while reading Keith Bickerstaffe's poem  "Dancer"

    I don't think, I know that I have a ways to go. I knew Keith a few years ago and then I had to drop out due to illness and wasn't online for a while. When I came back I was surprised and pleased to find him here. Thanks for your kind words and for coming by to review. Huggs TLee

    My pleasure my friend. It was your poem that was the muse for this so I gave credit where credit was due. Huggs TLee
