Many people have kindly said
my writings must be read.
Most can tell from the very start
that my renderings are directly from the heart.
They say I write of beauty and love
as if my hands were kissed by a dove.
They say my soulful song is one you must hear
knowing it will often cause one to shed a tear.
Some have asked why not take the time
to put your words in meter and Rhyme.
I say the stirring echoes of my rambling expression
often stands naked in the face of poetic compression.
Dear Soupers I not only thank you all for reading my poems,
but for giving my once solitary voice the very best of all homes.
Soupers this one was right off the top of my head which is very unlike me.
