I can only hand it to you

Tapped messages go out direct
With phones it's an easy connect
Thoughts from a finger
In cyberspace linger
But touching's too much to expect

    True words !! Touching, hearing...so much has been replaced by the touch of fingers on a phone. Enjoyed !!

    Nice limerick, Duke. I should try my hand at it. You make it look easy but I find it hellishly difficult. Keep 'em coming, my friend. :)

    You truly have a gift for limericks. I have read through most of the work you have posted and found the pieces quite delightful. Your poems are very witty and memorable. I am a newfound fan.

    Dear Duke, thanks for all the lovely comments and for reading so many of my poems today. I have to let you know, I will have been married 38 years this Aug, not 40, but I take poetic license to fit a syllable count! I am sure you know about that. We have to do it all the time with limericks!!! Let me see if I can find some limericks of yours I have never seen.

    Quite clever indeed. :) Duke, I also stopped by to deeply thank you for continuing to warm my heart, inspire me, and just make me feel like I am cared about and special. You are such a lovely person and I am really thankful to have this connection with you; it may only be through poetrysoup that we connect, but you connect with me far more than people that are in close proximity to me. I adore you! :) Take care

    You are in Andrea's poem, 'Five great limerick guys' along with me so I had to come see...and holy cow!...you are the limerick KING!

    Hello Duke, I'm not much of a text expert. However, I think the phones are much easier. By the way, it was an honor reading a poem from a poet name Laura B... It was a true enjoyment in reading her dedication to you. I also came here to thank you for the kind comment on my poem. I needed the uplifting words... always~ LINDA

    Hello Duke, I love your limerick, but that's nothing knew. :) Thank you so much for sending your extremely kind words recently. Sure- we may not know each other- but I can totally say the same for you. You have left an impact, and that makes you one of my dearest friends. :) You are wonderful!
