Linda Marie, Sweetheart of PS

Written by: Curtis Moorman


		Love flows continually from your pen
		In countless praise for others
		None are exempt from your encouragement
		Doing this comes natural for you
		Always putting others first

		Making them feel worthy
		Asking nothing in return
		Reminding them how much you care
		Including everyone – no one is left out
		Everybody is touched by your love

		Seeking to help struggling poets
		Willing to give advice
		Extolling their efforts
		Entreating them to never give up
		Telling them they can excel
		Helping them to press toward the mark
		Encouragement is your gift
		Applauding the winners of contests
		Remembering to thank others for their comments
		Teaching others to respect fellow poets

		Open minded
		Friendly beyond measure

		Precious to all “Soupers”
		Sweetheart, indeed
