Three Davids I have Known

David the First In an old photo I’m being bathed by a boy looking quite bashful. . . the first young man to hold me - my mother’s only brother. David Bunker My first love note came from junior high’s smartest guy - shy freckled David, future doctor of acclaim. For one month I had his heart. David Williams Our poet at Soup - like the one of Bible times whose psalms soothed a king - touches us with modern verse and blesses us with friendship. (As I went to enter the contest, I noticed I was supposed to write of only one famous David. Well, I don't know the famous ones like i know these three. In a way, my middle one is famous. I just googled him and saw he was on the short list of nominations for a prestigioius award naming most honorary of all students who ever graduated from my high school! and of course, our own David Williams is famous at SOUP!!)

    Dang Andrea, you beat me to writing about David of bible fame, and I am sure I couldn't do better, not in such short form, but I love what you have written about each. My poem 'Poet' was written with David Williams in mind.

    You have very well narrated three stories in this short, crisp and friendly write. All three David’s have played their wonderful role in your lovely story Andrea including David Williams, who is a poet friend of all of us. It is always a joy to recollect your first love or friendship moments. Beautiful write and thanks for your sweet words on Pearl Poem. I shall be placing a new Love Poem shortly hope you would like that unique story. Love & best wishes...Ravindra

    This is a beautiful tribute to our friend David! I really enjoyed reading this delightful and wondrous poem this afternoon! This one should do well in the contest even though there's no real 'Famous' David! I agree with you though, David is a famous person here on the Soup! What an incredible and pleasant piece you have written here, Great Work!!
