Tribute to Frank L Stanton

Frank L Stanton

I found my self a poet
When a friend sent me a book
And told me ‘You can keep it
Please at these poems look’
I opened up the pages
Where I saw some proper poems
Simple and delicious
Filled with Rhythm, and with rhyme
His writing it’s so simple
But goodness, how it flows
I look at every poem
And my soul, it starts to glow
I do not like those poems
That clumsy, so they be
And so I guess I have to say
Frank Stanton, he’s for me.

He writes about the country
He writes about sweet love
He writes at times of sad things
About the blue skies up above
Every poem that he writes
I read, then read again
Yes a fan of frank L Stanton
I always will remain.

    For this to be your first write offered after a 3 day break in your writing tells me that Mr. Frank L. Stanton captured your poet's heart exactly as he did mine so many decades ago ! Just a thought but perhaps you could quote his poem you like the best and write a poem in reply. I was so tempted to do that but did not because I lack the huge amount of poetic talent that such a task requires! I know you have no such lacking my friend. Consider it a friendly challenge from a good friend..

    My dear friend, I am so VERY PLEASED that you and Vera love the book. When I read your first three poems here shortly after finding this great site I knew Id been waiting 40 years and had finally found who my heart had told me it was meant to be gifted to! This tribute poem is exactly his style. For 40 years I learned from that Poet and was still learning but never truly mastered his style and magnificent super smooth delivery! I am fav' ing this great write now!!!! Thank you so very much!!!!!
