Tribute to Five Fabulous Poets

I write of young Timothy
A very thoughtful young man
A thinker among thinkers
He writes to all that he can

He places wonderful comments
And sees life in his own way
Things are so fascinating 
He so enjoys his word play

Then there is my friend Becca
She's sweet and refined
Her comments so generous
They reveal a heart that's kind

What is more spectacular
Is the poems that she has penned
Once I get to reading them
I wish that they didn't end

I have a new friend Freddie
Who may seem a darker sort
But there is much more to him
I am happy to report

He will not sugar coat it
His comments are to the point
When it comes to honesty
He adds color to the joint

Young Anne is a butterfly
As she flutters all about
She touches many people
So I give her this shout out

Her poems like diamonds 
Or perhaps even more rare
There may not be so many
They're all written with such care

I can't forget sweet Yanny 
She is a lovely sweet girl
Each comment a special gift
Each word precious like a pearl

With her own style of writing
She knows how to mesmerize
She can be inspiration
As words dance before my eyes

I wish I could honor more
But I'm limited to five
The poets here at the soup
That all make me feel alive

I am thankful for comments
For all the good and the bad
If they were to stop coming
That would really make me sad

Poem of dedication contest

    I am so touched that you mentioned me in this... makes my day! In real life, outside of writing, some think of me as kind of a space case, but I'm glad you don't see it like that. You have an imaginative mind as well as a big heart with all your dedication pieces... so glad to be able read your work and know you on this site! :)

    I don't have too much time to spend on the Soup, but I saw your comment and I had to stop by. Rick, you really have no idea how amazing you have made me feel! You are a million miles away, yet, you are so much closer to my heart than majority of the people in my life! You mean so much to me! You are the best, I really, truly love you to pieces!! Thank you for this, it just made my day, no... My entire month. :)
