A Tribute To Milt
"What I believed, however, will never be null
The poems I composed, the songs I sang
Sustain me in an ethereal, spiritual alter-ego
I shall continue to influence the world I knew"
L Milton Hankins
In his time here at Poetry Soup
Milt showed his prolific writing skills
He let his voice be heard in this group
and his impact echoes still
He was a resident of the fabled town of Soup Creek*
Of which many a story has been told
He stood up to bullies and made them look weak
In contests Milt would often get the gold
As he journeys on to an eternal sunset
To hear the hymns of a heavenly choir
He will be remembered on this site
and his poems will continue to inspire
In Honor Of Milt - An Un-Contest Poetry Contest

*To honor Milt's memory Mayor Tom has renamed the town "Milton Creek"
