Commenter's, I Thank You

Now where does this Highlander start To thank those commenter's, present and past So many read and absorbed Their kindness to me always lasts Dr.Ram and Carol Brown My African Queen 'Miss Wilma Neel's Michael from New York City Whose comments I internally feel There's Andrea, the Utah babe And Carolyn, from Florida State Their writing I so enjoy For their words reverberate John Loving is such a wonderful guy There's Sara and Doris too Deb Radke and Sharon Ruebel our newbies Made welcome to our literal zoo P.D. Skat and Constance Barbara, Iolanda and June Francine from lovely Nanaimo Many thanks to all of you To Ruben, Celene and Raul Your past writes have helped me grow Along with so many others You have helped my words to flow Blimey! I better not miss out the Brits Sarah, Brian, Sharon and June And Anna Marie, away down in Wales I have read in my front room Many dudes I also have to thank Harry Horsman the Geordie boy The two Roberts, Dufresne and Hinshaw Whose writings bring so much joy There's also the bard called Peranteau Billy the Kidster, Cecil as well HG, Catie Lindsey and James Goff Who marshalls his words real swell And lastly there's the thousands of others This character has ran out of space Keep the ink in you pen gently flowing Your names to me is your face Golly! this is turning into a story And many told by the above writing troops As I marvel at your writing ingredients Keep writing for this wonderful Soup

Hi James and Happy New Year to you and yours! Have literally just stumbled on this one with a search on Wales would you believe? How lovely of you to have considered including me in the poem - so kind and considerate of you and a struggle with so many followers - I'm just sorry not to have found it sooner. Good health and here's to Burn's night eh? Hope all's well...

hey, here is one I fell upon that I had never even seen before. Thanks for giving me a shout out in this one. I hope you find the poem with a fave that I gave you. It was probably from a long time ago, but I remember I noticed your name in my fave list when I was at my member area today prior to doing another blog about my contest! If you can't find it, there will always be a part two . I am going to repeat my Faves contest when the first one ends, and hope to see you in it!!
